Lord Peter Hain following ANC stalwarts wishes

Lord Peter Hain, UK campaigner for justice in South Africa, says many anti-apartheid activists in the country and outside, have been deeply hurt by what is happening in the country.

He says Ahmed Kathrada, before his death, had been deeply traumatised by this.

Hain became a British anti-apartheid leader when he was 19, after his parents were banned from South Africa and forced into exile in the UK.

He dismantled the 1969-70 Springbok all white world tour and managed to get non-inclusive sports activities isolated from international arenas.

To see Nelson Mandela's legacy of integrity and social justice, equality and transformation to confine apartheid to the dustbin, to see that being perverted and betrayed by the ruling elite in South Africa today and its business friends - a new kind of monopoly elite, to see them literally robbing the country is very upsetting indeed...

Lord Hain says he has asked the British Parliament and the British Finance Minister to investigate the money laundering linked to the Guptas and President Jacob Zuma.

He says he was asked by South African whistle blowers "senior stalwarts in the ANC" to look into this matter.
