The book gives a remarkable depth in time, thinking and articulation on the impact of colonialism on the people of Namibia and leaves the reader with little doubt that this historical context shaped the personality, which is Ngarikutuke Tjiriange.
His temperament, convictions and sense of indignation against oppression and injustice can be traced to his early understanding of the evils of colonial rule and racism. It is clear from his writing that Dr Tjiriange makes no apologies for his staunch progressive and anti-colonial consciousness. Amongst the most interesting of these are Dr Tjiriange recollections of the devastation that followed the Carpio Mission and its subsequent controversial outcomes.
Dr Tjiriange clarifies quite well that there was no contradiction, nor hesitation from Namibians - including himself - in achieving independence for Namibia.
He further narrates how he, along with the likes of Nathanael Maxuilili, John ya Otto, Gabriel Mbidi and Levy Nganjone, worked together to leave no doubt that Namibians were resolute in ensuring their freedom and independence. Dr Tjiriange is very generous in his writing, often sharing deeply personal insights about his relationships with his contemporaries and comrades. He takes us through - although succinctly — and into the many events that shaped his life and career. These include his studies at the State University of Leningrad and later in Kiev.
It is here that we begin to see Tjiriange - the intellectual - emerging, blending in well with the image of Tjiriange, the brave heart revolutionary that the book exposes us to in its earlier sections.
My Personal Journey to Hell and Back
Throughout the book Tjiriange is generous in detailing his relationship with some of the more prominent figures in Swapo and the broader liberation movement. In chapter 17, while detailing his return to Tanzania after having completed his PhD in the USSR, Tjiriange narrates how he built his lifelong work relationship and camaraderie with Dr Hifikepunye Pohamba, a tutelage he clearly enjoyed and valued.
He refers to, among other occasions, the role of these stalwarts of our struggle in his educational, political and intellectual development. What is clear of these formative years is that Tjiriange lived his life entirely for the struggle and was dedicated wholly and completely to Swapo. It details and teaches lessons of the path towards true revolution.
Presidential Perspective: My Journey to Hell and Back | UNAVSA
In its annals, the duty of my generation and those even younger than I, is to defend, advance and secure the gains of our revolution. Perhaps some readers will find the chapters to be abrupt. Despite this, it will not be lost on the reader that the book is purposeful and informative.
It is rich with anecdotes and with new perspectives, without being revisionist. Its perspective will hopefully add colour to our renewed sense of optimism and hope about the prospects of our country. New Era Reporter 3 years ago.
