Now available as an e-book on Amazon: “Are you a Person or a Ghost?” by Andrew Niikondo!

  • 12 July 2023

Andrew Niikondo was born on 15 January 1962 at Onantsi Village near Ondangwa in the Oshana region. His formal education was terminated with Standard 7 (Grade 9).

He joined the People’s Liberation Army of Namibia (PLAN) at the age of 17 and received his military training in the Tobias Hainyeko Training Centre (Lubango) as an artillerist in 1979.

The liberation struggle did not afford him the opportunity for further his studies. He re-started school after the struggle, obtained his Standard 10 certificate in 1992 and eventually obtained a PhD in Public Administration from the University of Namibia in 2008.

He wrote this story to recall the hardships experienced by the Namibian freedom fighters and to illustrate that the life of a person is a journey with ups and downs.


The printed version was published in 2018 and is available in local bookstores and can be ordered from our online shop. The e-book can be downloaded here. The book is also available with Kindle Unlimited.
