  • Südwesterlied - Gé Korsten

    3:25

    Mein Freund Heinz Springstvl in Deutschland, das hier ist für dich! Ich habe Deutsch in der Schule, vor langer Zeit, kann aber nicht viel merken!

    Ook vir die 2 Suidwesters, Dirkie en Hercules, wat saam met my in die Slavenhuis gebly het, julle ouens was altyd vriendelik, net soos Suidwesters is. As julle dit lees en wonder wie ek is, my broer was ook daar, sy bynaam 'Jakkals' !!

    Southwest, the subject of this song, the country which this war against forces from within Angola was all about, and in which so much blood was spilled. A country with proud and good residents, amongst them White Afrikaans speaking Caucasians which for the most part were close to White Afrikaans speaking Caucasians in South Africa, although not always in agreement politically. Some background in a nutshell : The country now called Namibia, which prior to 1990 was called South-West-Africa (SWA), or Southwest for short (Südwest in German) by its residents, as well as by South Africa, was colonised by Germany in 1884, and called German South West (Südwest by the Germans) and during WW1 was taken in battle against Germany by the Boere forces - Boere referring to White Afrikaans speaking Caucasians from South Africa, who called the country Duitswes (Germanwest) - in 1914 and 1915. Southwest Africa was declared a League of Nations Mandate territory under the Treaty of Versailles, with the Union of South Africa responsible for the administration of South-West Africa. This basically continued until the end of the SWA Angolan Bush War, after which SWA gained Independence and became the Republic of Namibia in 1990. Today there are still many German descendants living in Southwest / Namibia, and much of the rich heritage and architecture is still seen in Namibia today. As always, as the song clearly demonstrate, the country has always held a fierce patriotism and love for their country, by its residents, despite it being a harsh and unforgiving land. The song itself was, and to an extent still is, a fiercely patriotic song, about the country, and to this day regarded still amongst a large part of the population and the country as the Unofficial National Anthem of Namibia / Southwest Africa.
