Herero language

Love poem translated into the herero language of Namibia (Hereroland), Botswana and Angola. This Bantu language is spoken by the Herero people. They will be 100,000 to be able to understand my little poem in otjiherero (herero, helelo, ochiherero, ovaherero).

The Hereros

The Hereros are pastors, whose whole life is determined by the search for pastures. They revolted in 1896 and 1904, and were decimated by the Germans, which provoked Erzberger's opposition and the government coalition break-up.
