Description

In 1963 Mukwahepo left her home in Namibia and followed her fiancé across the border into Angola. They survived hunger and war and eventually made their way to Tanzania. There, Mukwahepo became the first woman to undergo military training with SWAPO. For nine years she was the only woman in SWAPO’s Kongwa camp. She was then thrust into a more traditional women’s role of taking care of children in the SWAPO camps in Zambia and Angola.
