Ben Uulenga tells interviewer Brian Wood that he went for military training with the People's Liberation Army of Namibia (PLAN) forces and began operating as part of PLAN in 1975. In mid-1976, he was wounded and picked up by enemy forces. Uulenga says he was charged, tried, and sentenced to Robben Island prison, where he was kept in a communal cell with other SWAPO members. Uulenga is now General Secretary of the Mineworkers Union of Namibia (MUN), the centerpiece of the National Union of Namibian Workers (NUNW).
