Born May 12, 1929 in the Ovambo, the area in northern Namibia. He was educated in missionary schools. In 1949-1959 worked as a servant, first in the Namibian branch of the South African railways, then in the trading system and the various institutions of the capital.

In 1973 the UN General Assembly recognized SWAPO sole legitimate representative of the Namibian people, and in 1978 adopted a resolution? 435. The plan called for the cessation of hostilities, a phased withdrawal of troops from Namibia, South Africa, the holding of free elections under UN supervision, and was eventually adopted by South Africa in 1988. September 14, 1989 Nujoma returned to the country. In the elections on Nov. 6, 1989 to the Legislative Assembly of SWAPO won 57% votes and 41 seats in Parliament (out of 72).
