Andimba Toivo ja Toivo
Herman Andimba Toivo ya Toivo (born 22 August 1924) is a Namibian politician who was active in the independence movement. He is a founding member of the Ovamboland People's Congress (OPC) in 1957, at the beginning of the independence movement.
Toivo was born in Omangundu in Oshana Region in the north of Namibia. Toivo ya Toivo fought for the Allied Forces during World War II. Later, because of his political activities in support of Namibian independence, he was arrested in 1966 by the South African authorities. On 26 January 1968, he was sentenced by a Pretorian court to 20 years' imprisonment. He was incarcerated at Robben Island, near Cape Town, where he spent most of his time isolated from his fellow countrymen. Ya Toivo was released on 1 March 1984.
From 1984 to 1991, he was the Secretary General of the South West Africa People's Organization (SWAPO).
Toivo was a SWAPO member of the Constituent Assembly, which was in place from November 1989 to March 1990, immediately prior to independence, and upon independence in March 1990 he became a member of the National Assembly. He was also Minister of Mines and Energy from 1990 until his appointment as Minister of Labour on 26 March 1999. After over three years in that position, he was appointed as Minister of Prisons on 27 August 2002, switching posts with Marco Hausiku; he remained Minister of Prisons until 2006.
He chose not to run for a seat in the National Assembly again at the time of the 2004 election, saying that he had "done enough".
Toivo received the eleventh-most votes—358—in the election to the Central Committee of SWAPO at the party's August 2002 congress. At SWAPO's November 2007 congress, Toivo failed to be elected to the SWAPO Politburo for the first time in the party's history. This was attributed to Toivo's purported link to the opposition Rally for Democracy and Progress (RDP), a party that had been founded as a split from SWAPO shortly before the congress. Toivo denied being linked to the RDP, but the claim was believed to have influenced the vote.
At the SWAPO Congress on 2 December 2012, Andimba ya Toivo was elected as a permanent member of the Central Committee.
He lives with his wife and two daughters.

Like most graphic novels produced with educational intent, the art takes a far second to the didactic text in this graphic biography of the South African icon. It's tough to criticize a book created to contribute to the ongoing canonization of the still-living Mandela. The intent is clear from the lack of individual creator credits, since who ...
