Khoisan communities in the Northern Cape have called on President Cyril Ramaphosa to sign the Traditional Khoisan Leadership Bill into law as soon as he can.
The Bill was sent for promulgation to the President after it was passed by the National Council of Provinces in Parliament last week.
Once signed into law, the Bill will give recognition to traditional structures in the various Khoisan communities, the Kings, Queens and chiefs; and it has been widely welcomed.
However, there are some aspects communities are not happy about. Among other things, they feel their leaders are not treated equally compared to other traditional leaders but they believe that can still be negotiated.
Chief Khoi-San SA and his six supporters says they do not support the Traditional and Khoisan Leadership Amendment Bill. The group has been camping for a second time for more than a month at the Union Buildings in Pretoria #WeekendView #sabcnews pic.twitter.com/Z90GIpnSDl

Khoisan communities have also suggested that a commission be established to ascertain the validity of some of the leadership claims.
