The Kweneng Land Board has asserted the demands of its dismissed employees might be potentially illegal, as their requests contravene the Tribal Land Act.

The Board is currently seeking to overturn a judgment favouring nine former employees involved in a clash over land allocation.

The former employees, some reinstated and others with pending cases, accused the Land Board of failing to subdivide and allocate their ploughing fields despite the approval of their 2019 application. The Land Board lost the case but is now pursuing a rescission of the judgment by Justice Gaolapelwe Ketlogetswe after it had failed to file court documents including an answering affidavit when the matter was first brought against it. Land Board argues through its attorney, Phenyo Sekape, that the relief sought against it is potentially illegal.
