NOT AMUSED: Some Of Basarwa who want to move

Basarwa staying in areas surrounding Kareng, a settlement in the North West District last week marched into NWDC offices in Maun demanding answers on a pending move to relocate them to Qhorotsha area.

They want to be relocated to the land which is 110km from where they are based now for the sake of their livestock.

The five member team told The Voice that they have been waiting since 1981 after asking to be relocated to Qhorotsha because their animals were dying of hunger in the drought prone area where they are currently residing.

“Our animals are dying because there is nothing to graze on at Kareng and it looks like our plea is falling on deaf ears,” said one of the team members.

The team together with their Councillor Lekopanye Ledimo mentioned that at Qhorotsha there is grazing land and water which was connected by funds from President Ian Khama in order to make relocation quicker.

“Khama gave out P1 million for the construction of a dam and to help with water connection, a thing which was done in 2010 but there has been some delays especially on Tawana Land Board’s side,” said Ledimo.

He said that a total of 600 people leaving in Kareng catchment areas have signed a form as a sign of wishing to relocate.

Contacted for a comment, public relations officer for Tawana Land Board, Molefshwane Mogau said the land board has not made any resolution on the issue.

    “demanding answers on a pending move to relocate them to Qhorotsha area.”- Probably the case could be no one is consulting with THEM- The Board in question seems to be Problematic

    This Land Board besides bragging that they have rebranded seem to be still the same – targeting the disadvantaged in Society-
    demolishing their homes and leaving them to live in the open
    and when they want to be relocated they do nothing at all to assist.

    Thumbs up to those who are demanding answers – you have done the right thing- just because you are from a humble background they need to LISTEN and not ignore you- Well done to you

    ” a thing which was done in 2010 but there has been some delays especially on Tawana Land Board’s side,” said Ledimo.”

    What is causing the delays??????? But the board seems to demolish homes of the disadvantaged AS EXPEDITIOUSLY AS POSSIBLE

    “Contacted for a comment, public relations officer for Tawana Land Board, Molefshwane Mogau said the land board has not made any resolution on the issue.” Is it because they come from a humble background???????????

    the comments that come out of these PRO’s are not good comments most of the time- everyone is hiding behind the PRO

    To the Group – Keep up the visit to the Offices even if it means camping outside

    They want to be relocated because of their livestock the Councillor has come on board to support them and someone is taking 2 YEARS TO MAKE A DECISION and not even paying attention to the Councillor . They are not wanting to be re-located just for good times its about their LIVESTOCK and this could be their only means of sustaining them is to RELOCATE WHERE THERE IS WATER- WATER IS LIFE without water there are problems- if their animals die no one will probably assist to replace them
