Amazon’s HQ in South Africa faces legal battle

A plan by Amazon to build a nine-storey business and residential complex in the South African city of Cape Town may face legal problems, the AFP news agency reports.

The multimillion-dollar African headquarters is expected to be the size of about 10 football pitches, and is to be situated on ancestral land belonging to the Khoi San people that was also the site of a key colonial battlefield, AFP says.

“Our heritage will be completely wiped out,” paramount chief Aran Goringhaicona told AFP. “There is so much spiritual significance to this place.”

A neighbourhood group has now written to the developer about their intention to appeal the project in the courts.

Construction of the complex is due to start next month
