Operation Askari: SWAPO/FAPLA Forces
Operation Askari


From as early as July 1983 there had been signs that SWAPO intended to withdraw about 1,400 members of their “Special Unit” to the Lubango and Donga areas for preparations and retraining for infiltration during the coming rain season. It was apparent from a conference that was held in Botswana during May 1983 between SWAPO and SWAPO Internal that they were intend upon a much more coordinated effort than ever before. A consequence of this conference was, among others, the establishment of a more coordinated effort of the internal struggle in South-West Africa, as well as the involvement of SWAPO Internal in the establishment of an infrastructure for the pending infiltration. It seemed that SWAPO Internal had, in fact, never been active in the Operational Area of northern SWA, only SWAPO (PLAN).
