Heroes’ Day 2021 in Namibia


Windhoek, 26 August 2021 (TDI): Namibia celebrates heroes’ day every year on 26th August. This day is celebrated for those who sacrificed their lives in the Namibian War of Independence.

Hage G. Geingob, the President of Namibia, said that this day is not only significant for the Namibian struggle for independence, but also it represents the struggle for the liberation of the entire South African region.
