Khoisan activists have given Statistics South Africa 60 days to abolish the term “coloured”, saying it was derogatory, inhumane and not created by God.

Chief Khoisan SA, a staunch activist, walked from Port Elizabeth to East London with Shane Plaatjies to hand over their memorandum of demands to the Stats SA provincial offices in Quigney.

Clad in Khoisan traditional regalia made out of animal skin, Chief Khoisan SA and Plaatjies started their journey from Port Elizabeth last Wednesday, resting along the way, and arrived in East London on Sunday afternoon.
