About

The South African government is planning to pass the Traditional and Khoi-San Leadership bill this coming year. This law will change how democracy is experienced by many South Africans, yet the vast majority of the population remain ignorant to its repercussions. In particular, many South Africans are unaware of who the Khoi-San are, what their history has been, and what struggles in contemporary South Africa they face. In partnership with the Cobuqua people – a Khoi-San nation in what is now known as the Eastern Cape – this blog will attempt to explain this history, and to highlight the challenges which many Khoi-San people confront today, including how the bill has an impact on them.
