The Khoi-San community in South Africa will finally get recognition following President Jacob Zuma’s announcement yesterday that a bill will be implemented to empower indigenous people.

The Bill will be finalised next month.

Zuma was speaking at the Good Hope Centre in Cape Town in commemoration of the birth of Griqua Chief Adam Kok the First.

Zuma says he is fully aware of the need to improve the economic, social and cultural situation of indigenous people.

Meanwhile, leader of the Griqua community, King Adam Kok the Fifth, says the Khoi are still being marginalised. He called on government to speed up recognition for the rights of Khoisan people.
