Cassinga Day remembered

Namibian’s today across the world are remembering the harsh day of 4 May 46 year’s ago when the South African Defence Force attacked a SWAPO base at Cassinga in southern Angola.

Personalities and politicians alike have taken to their social media platforms sharing messages of hope and courage in remembrance of those who lost their lives in the massacre. 

Unwrap.online spoke to award-winning artist ML Musik who dedicated a song to the survivors who spoke on the responsibilities of creatives in preserving historical events and incidences. 

“ We have the power to attribute songs to live on as you can see on a day as this people celebrate by playing my song because that is what they can relate to and that is the influence that we have,” she said.

Member of parliament Emma Theofelus tweeted: 

“ Today, we commemorate a poignant moment in the history of our struggle for independence. Today, we dedicate ourselves to honour fallen heroes and heroines of the #Cassinga massacre that took place in Angola in 1978 during the liberation struggle. We Remember Cassinga, We Remember.”

The president of the republic also took to Twitter saying:
