Botswana Court rules eviction of Bushmen from land in the Kalahari was illegal

This is ancestral land. Once more it has to be shown that Africa’s wealth is withheld from the people. Not only that many are dispossessed. The irony is that many of those who have acquired wealth from the former colonial powers are now mimicking their appalling behaviour.
