According to an article in The Namibian dated 22 March 2012, the decision of the Bank of Namibia to replace the portrait of anti-colonialist Chief Hendrik Witbooi with that of founding President Sam Nujoma on the new 10- and 20-dollar (US$1.30 and 2.60, respectively) notes has stirred up a bit of controversy. These notes, along with other denominations which retain Witbooi's portrait, were unveiled on 21 March, but won't be issued until May.
Further details about security features on these notes can be found here.
