White-only settlers seek S Africa recognition

Community outside Pretoria pushing for official status as town to preserve their Afrikaner culture.

    Some white people in South Africa have chosen to segregate themselves and live in white-only settlements.

    They say it is the best way of preserving their Afrikaner culture and language.

    One such community, Kleinfontein, which is just outside Pretoria, is now pushing for official status as a town.

    Al Jazeera's Tania Page reports from Kleinfontein, South Africa.
