Balete paramount, Kgosi Mosadi Seboko, says she is elated by a court judgement yesterday, which ruled that the tribe is the rightful owner of a Kgale farm, located south of Gaborone.The government had claimed that the land belongs to the Land Board under the Tribal Territories Act which places the administration of the farm to the Malete Land Board.
A panel of three judges however unanimously agreed that the tribe had been unconstitutionally deprived of their private property. Judge Gabriel Komboni, said the tribe acquired the land as private property and judgment was passed in favour of Kgosi Seboko Mokgosi for and on behalf of the morafe.
Another Judge Michael Mothobi highlighted that the tribe had not even been compensated as per the laws of Botswana.Speaking to the media after the judgement was handed down, Kgosi Mosadi Seboko, said she will brief the morafe soon about the case.
