“The surname Witbooi is one of the historical surnames in Namibia. In fact, the name is related to the late captain Hendrik Witbooi, who kept on when he was fighting for the liberation of this country while he was shot by the German soldiers during the war. I was born Witbooi and married Witbooi. I was married to Adam Hendrik Witbooi, who was in the 5th generation from Hendrik Witbooi and was also an AME pastor. He passed away 13 years ago in a car accident. At the AME I learned how to work with the community, you see, and this history is the Witbooi way of doing things. They have the Bible in the one hand and the gun in the other, like the captain Hendrik Witbooi.“
