Khoisan leader Aubrey September insists Khoisan people should be recognised as South Africa's indigenous people and that a two-week long sit-in outside the Union Buildings is a means to highlight this and other issues.
September is one of four men who have been protesting outside the Pretoria seat of government.
He says while they have not engaged with President Jacob Zuma, they have met with Minister Jeff Radebe to discuss their demands.
For the last 24 years in democracy, we have never been liberated, never been recognised. We are still being called coloured which to us is a very degrading word.— Aubrey September, Khoisan chief
We are the first indigenous people of South Africa, and the problem is they only want us to claim land until 1913 and we want that Act to be scrapped because we are in South Africa as the first indigenous people long before 1652.— Aubrey September, Khoisan chief
Meanwhile Chief Khoisan SA says the legal framework for land claims is preventing them from claiming land.
