Will Botswana government's U-turn on Bushmen last?
The Botswana government has promised to restore some of the essential services to the Central Kalahari Game Reserve that it cut on this day 14 years ago.

The healthcare and water services that it now says it will reinstate were shut down by the government during the brutal eviction of Bushmen from the reserve in 2002.

In 2006, Botswana’s High Court ruled that the evictions were illegal, and upheld the Bushmen’s right to return home. However, the majority of the Bushmen continue to be denied access to their former homeland, and the government has imposed a one-month permit system for children who want to live with their families inside the reserve after they turn 18 that has been likened to South Africa’s apartheid “pass laws.”

The court also ruled that banning the Bushmen in the reserve from hunting was “tantamount to condemning [them] to death.” Yet despite this the government imposed a nationwide hunting ban – with exemptions for wealthy trophy hunters – in 2014, leaving the Bushmen effectively to starve.

In 2011, the Bushmen were forced to return to court, to demand the government allow them to sink water boreholes on their land. An elderly Bushman woman, Qoroxloo Duxee, had previously died in the reserve of dehydration and starvation.

The recent decision to restore services follows talks between the government and Bushman communities. While some Bushmen welcome the decision, many fear the U-turn could be short lived, and view the move as timed to coincide with the country’s 50th anniversary of independence.

Survival’s Director Stephen Corry said today: “It remains to be seen whether this good news is merely a ploy to silence criticism in the run-up to Botswana’s 50th anniversary celebrations. In any case, the pledge should be seen in the wider context of General Khama’s refusal to allow all Bushmen to return to the ancestral homelands from which they were illegally evicted. If he continues to violate the High Court ruling, there will be no Bushmen left in the reserve to enjoy these services in two generations’ time.”

Volta radical do governo de Botsuana quanto aos Bosquímanos. Durará?
O governo de Botsuana prometeu restaurar à Reserva de Caça do Kalahari Central alguns dos serviços essenciais que cortou há 14 anos.

Os serviços de saúde e água, que o governo vem dizer que vai restituir, foram encerrados pelo governo durante os despejos brutais dos Bosquímanos da reserva em 2002.

Em 2006, O Tribunal Supremo de Botsuana considerou que os despejos eram ilegais e sustentou o direito dos Bosquímanos para voltar à reserva. No entanto, à maioria dos Bosquímanos continua a ser negada o acesso à sua terra ancestral e o governo impôs um sistema de autorização de um mês para as crianças que quiserem viver com as suas famílias no interior da reserva depois de terem completado os 18 anos. O sistema tem sido comparado às práticas do apartheid da África do Sul.

O tribunal também determinou que proibir os Bosquímanos da reserva de caçar equivale a “condená-los à morte”. No entanto, apesar disso, em 2014 o governo impós uma proibição de caça a nivel nacional – com isenções para caçadores esportivos – deixando os Bosquímanos efetivamente morrerem de fome.

Em 2011, os Bosquímanos foram obrigados de voltar ao tribunal, para exigir que o governo lhes permita cavar poços nas suas terras. Uma mulher Bosquímana, Qoroxloo Duxee, já tinha morrido na reserva de desidratação e de fome.

A recente decisão de restaurar os serviços segue negociações entre o governo e as comunidades dos Bosquímanos. Enquanto alguns dos Bosquímanos acolheram favoralmente a decisão, muitos temem que a decisão seja de curta duração, e veem a mudança como programada para coincidir com o aniversário de 50 anos de independência do país.

O Diretor da Survival, Stephen Corry, hoje disse: “Resta ver se esta boa notícia não será apenas uma manobra para calar as vozes críticas na preparação para as celebrações do 50º aniversário de Botsuana. Em qualquer caso, o compromisso deve ser visto no contexto mais amplo da recusa do General Khama de permitir todos os Bosquímanos a voltar às suas terras ancestrais de onde foram despejados ilegalmente. Se ele continuar de violar a decisaõ do Tribunal Supremo, não haverá mais Bosquímanos na reserva dentro de duas gerações.”

Bio

I am a Portuguese to English language translator, hailing from Goa, a former Portuguese colony, with a Masters (MA) degree in Portuguese Literature and Culture. I additionally also hold many certifications and degrees related to language proficiency. I worked with a multinational firm as a Portuguese language specialist handling back-office Work Force Administration operations in Latin America and Portugal, for 3 and a half years. I worked at the Consulate General of Portugal in Goa-India as a Consular Officer for 2.5 years. I have completed a Masters degree in International Studies from ISCTE-IUL, Lisbon, Portugal with a focus on anthropology. I have published a research paper in the Interdisciplinary Journal for Portuguese Diaspora Studies titled "The Forgotten Community, “the Siddis of Uttara Kannada”: How the Portuguese Indian Ocean slave trade produced a community of Indians of African descent. 

I work with a variety of domains. However, I specialize in certificate/CV/License translations, Academic Transcripts, Diplomas, Property Descriptions and Registration, Business Contracts, Employment Contracts, SAP-related documents, mining documents and anthropology related documents. I preferably translate documents from Portuguese to English. However, depending upon the text, I also often carry out translations from English to Portuguese.
