Moloi documents the two-fold struggle of the Herero and Nama people of Namibia for the return of skulls taken by German scientists in the wake of the 1904 genocide, and the Herero’s determination to have Germany formally apologise for the genocide and make financial reparation.
Moloi’s document of a grassroots organisation taking on the intransigence of their government, and the Germans, tells a broader tale of post-imperialism and identity politics that pervades modern Namibia, resonates across the continent, and speaks urgently to the global sectarian wars that dominate the airwaves.
