Ditshwanelo, the Botswana Centre for Human Rights stands in solidarity with the Namibians from the Caprivi Strip (now Zambezi Region), and wishes to express its concern about how the Government of Botswana is dealing with the Caprivians, including their children.

The long-standing request by the Caprivians is that the Government of Botswana and the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) support a peaceful resolution to their situation by facilitating constructive dialogue between them and the Government of Namibia. This request has to date not been acceded to.

It sought the court to order the Government to retain its recognition of the refugee status of the applicants in Botswana.
