It seems that the Botswana government, spurred on by potential diamond mining revenue from de Beers, is going ahead with the forced expulsion of Kalahari Bushmen from their traditional lands.
'If this is the last chapter in the 200-year old genocide of the Bushmen, then it's also the final curtain for Botswana's and De Beers's reputation. A new policy, abiding by international law and recognising Bushman land, would begin the long haul of rebuilding that reputation, but there is not the slightest sign of that happening. On the contrary, the ethnic cleansing continues, and they're now even shooting small children. Botswana's many friends must forcefully express their disgust, or suffer enduring shame.' - Stephen Corry, Survival International.
