Windhoek - A group of 12 San families who were evicted from a Namibian farm have rejected a resettlement offer made by the Grootfontein municipality, Namibian newspaper New Era has reported.
The families were evicted from a farm belonging to Namibia's High Commissioner to Nigeria, Peingondjabi Shipoh, and had been resettled temporarily in a different area.
They have, however, demanded a place to stay, where they would remain "undisturbed" and in peace.

In addition, they also lamented the resettlement's long distance from their children's school, claiming that their academic performances would be affected.
The development marked the latest in a scandal that has played out since Friday, with the families having been evicted and left homeless on Monday night.
The fate of their livestock also hung in the balance, with approximately 500 animals scheduled to be auctioned on February 19.
Julietha Shimbojo, a spokesperson for the families, revealed that their refusal to move to the new area was based on the fact that the land belonged to the Grootfontein municipality and, as a result, they would have no power over it.
