Briefing the so-called Parliamentary Friendship Group, Katjavivi said “As you may recall, the Director General (DG) of African Affairs in the German Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr Walter Lindner visited Namibia in February 2012. This visit was followed by Hon. Roth Karin of the SPD on 21st April 2012 and Hon. Niema Mossavat of Die Linke on a later date.” At those meeting bilateral relations were discussed as well as the Herero genocide of 1904.
“Our discussions with the dignitaries hinged on the following” said Katjaviva listing them as  “Bilateral relations between Germany and Namibia, the unfinished business of the atrocities committed by German colonial forces against the Namibian people, the subject of the phased return of the human remains (skulls) of Namibian ancestors from Germany.”
