SA wants remains of Khoisan chief





Johannesburg - An investigation to get the remains of a 240-year-old Khoisan chief repatriated from Australia is under way, the National Heritage Council (NHC) said on Sunday. "Chief David Stuurman was one of the few known people who successfully escaped more than once from Robben Island," said NHC spokesperson Danny Goulkan. He said the chief was incarcerated there for his persistent fight against colonialism as early as around 1808 and 1809.

"The culture of entitlement is strangling South Africa. Ironically though, it is also what keeps our ruling party in charge, says Prof Hussein Solomon."
