Leaders condemn defacing of Hankey burial site

EMOTIONS ran high yesterday when about 20 members from four of the five national Khoisan houses addressed the media at a press briefing following the defacing of the Sarah Baartman burial site in Hankey.

The world-famous burial site and memorial plaque was splashed with white paint on Saturday.

According to police, a group of men threw the white paint onto the plaque shortly before midday.
