South Africa occupied the German colony of South-West Africa during World War I and administered it as a mandate until after World War II, when it annexed the territory. In 1966 A.D. the Marxist South-West Africa People's Organization (SWAPO) guerrilla group launched a war of independence for the area that was soon named Namibia, but it was not until 1988 A.D. that South Africa agreed to end its administration in accordance with a UN peace plan for the entire region. Namibia has been governed by SWAPO since the country won independence in 1990 A.D.. Hifikepunye Pohamba was elected president in November 2004 A.D. in a landslide victory replacing Sam Nujoma who led the country during its first 14 years of self rule. English is the official language; Afrikaans and German are also spoken.
