South Africa's Khoisan reject nuclear plans

New power station to meet energy demands faces opposition from indigenous landowners.

    South Africa's government is looking to nuclear power for its future energy demands.

    But the preferred site of its first new nuclear power station, is on land that is culturally sensitive to the
    Khoisan, an indigenous tribe, who are determined to fight the development.
