The Gaborone High Court has ordered the family of Pitseng Gaoberekwe at Metsiamanong in the CKGR to pay the sum of "P16,500 as security for costs and typing of record" for them to appeal their case.

The body of Gaoberekwe, now nine months awaiting burial in a morgue at Joyce's Funeral Parlour, is the subject at the centre of the dispute between the government and the deceased's progeny regarding a tussle over a burial site that remains unresolved.

Gaoberekwe died on December 21, 2021, and his remains await a resolution on whether his last wishes will be granted. The family wants to appeal a case in which they want to bury the body of their father at the CKGR (Central Kalahari Game Reserve) after losing at the Gaborone High Court.
