Khoisan Tribe in Court Over Ancestral Land

The Kalahari Khoisan tribe aims to take Botswana's government to court to reaffirm a previous ruling that granted the tribe legal rights to its ancestral land

The Kalahari Khoisan tribe is taking Botswana's government to court to reaffirm a previous ruling that granted the tribe legal rights to its ancestral land.

According to international advocacy group, Survival International, Botswana's government has been denying the Khoisan right to return to their land despite a landmark decision in 2006 that reversed the eviction of around 1 000 tribesmen from the Central Kalahari Game Reserve (CKGR).

Botswana is arguing that the verdict only applies to the 186 individuals named in the original case, requiring others to obtain permits that grant access to the territory for up to one month.
