Paying respects at the Graves of the Chief's

 

Following the Battle of Waterberg on 11 August 1904 Samuel Maharero spent his remaining years in exile until his death in 1923. His body was returned to Okahandja where is was buried with befitting ceremony, with his ancestors. The above complex houses the graves the Chiefs: Tjamuaha, Samuel Maharero, Friedrich Maharero, and Kaimbire Tjamuaha.

 

Directions: Okahandja's main street is called Martin Neib Ave. About 150meters south of the Post Office tower turn east into Voigts Street. After about 50 meters you arrive at the T-Junction with Heroes Street. Turn left. You will see the sign "Herero Graves". It points to the sandy path that will lead you about 100m to the Chiefs Grave.


Herero Chief's Graves

There is a second site where other Herero Chiefs are laid to rest.

Directions: This is at the southern end of Heroes Street on the left hand side, next to the German Evangelical Church. Here, behind a fence are the graves of Herero Chiefs:

  • Clemens Kapuuo  06-03-1923 to 27-03-1978
  • Hosea Kutako 1870 to 15-07-1970

National Heritage Site

Jan Jonker Afrikaner Grave

The Grave of Jonker Afrikaner can be seen in a separate section of the above wired-off complex. This despotic leader of the Nama was the most powerful mid-nineteenth century warlord in Namibia.

In one manipulative struggle to consolidate his control of the central area of the country he slaughtered many of the Herero at Okahandja
