Members of the Witbooi Clan, the Minister of Education, Katrina Hanse-Himarwa and the German Minister of Science, Research and the Arts, Theresia Bauer led a convoy of people carrying the Bible and whip of iconic Captain Hendrik Witbooi south to the Hardap Region earlier today. The procession departed Windhoek and stopped over in Rehoboth, Kalkrand and finally in Mariental. Captain Witbooi had a strong historical bond with Mariental and Gibeon. Members of the public and school children gathered in large crowds to view the Bible and the whip as well as two skulls of Nama and Herero origin. The historical artifacts from Germany arrived in at the Hosea Kutako International Airport in Windhoek on Tuesday.
