South Africa's shame over Dalai Lama visa

I WAS disgusted by South Africa's failure to issue a visa to the Dalai Lama. The government lacked the courage to say no, knowing quite well how the rest of the world would view its double-standards.

When they needed the rest of the world to help them in their struggles for human rights, they received global support.

They have slapped the faces of mankind and firmly reached out for financial gain over their commitment to people such as the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Tutu.
