Group leader Chief Khoisan SA said despite Freedom Month and Freedom Day commemorations on Saturday, they were still on a mission to request an audience with President Cyril Ramaphosa.
“Freedom Day in particular reminded us of how unfair the government is. We did not have anything to celebrate, instead we spent the day debating about the rights we have and those we are being denied.”
For five months now, the group has failed to get the attention of the president to discuss the demands previously presented to government.
As part of the demands, they want the Khoisan to be recognised as the first nation of the country and their language made official. They also want land, in addition to the scrapping of the Land Claims Act.
