Eenhana is the capital town of the Ohangwena Region, northern Namibia, on the border with Angola. Before Namibian independence it was a military centre of the South African Defence Force without public infrastructure. It was proclaimed a settlement in 1992, and a town in 1999.
The name of the Eenhana comes from the word calves in Oshikwanyama and is a reference to the calves that used to water at the small water pan where Eenhana is now located. Eenhana is situated in tropical forest. It is connected to the road network and has a well-developed infrastructure. Due to the proximity of Angola, many businesses are situated here. The town hosts a trade fair every year.
Eenhana is the location of at least five mass graves believed[by whom] to date back to the South African occupation. Theories as to the origin of these graves are controversial with some blaming the Koevoet regiment and some blaming Swapo violations of the cease-fire agreement. In 2008 the government built the Eenhana Memorial Shrine shrine for those people which is situated on the northern part of the town.
