Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Khoisan activists who had been on a hunger strike to seek the attention of the Presidency have arrived back home.

Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa met with the activists at the Union Buildings Sunday and accepted their memorandum of grievances.

The activists who had walked from the Eastern Cape to Pretoria were demanding to meet with President Jacob Zuma or Ramaphosa.

They were demanding that government recognise their language as official and name them as South Africa’s first people.

The meeting with Ramaphosa has ended the activists’ hunger strike which lasted more than two weeks.

Government flew the activists back home to enable them to spend Christmas Day with their families.
