Jay Naidoo on how we'll try explain our actions to children one day

It was announced on Thursday (October 2 2014) that the 14th Nobel Laureates Summit had been postponed to be held in an alternative city still to be announced.

While making the announcement, Executive Mayor Patricia De Lille criticised the South African national government for their delayed response to the Dalai Lama’s visa application, and added they had shamed the legacy of Nelson Mandela, and has lost its moral compass.

Jay Naidoo tweeted the following in response:

He says the development has left him feeling "shocked" as the event was going to be a great opportunity to hold dialogue in the memory of the former statesman, who had himself met the Dalai Lama three times before.

Naidoo says we have insulted the man, we have insulted democracy and insulted the majority of our citizens who fought for our freedom.

He says that he does not care about the semantics of whether or not the Dalai Lama had withdrawn his application or whether his visa was denied, but that the point is that we have refused him entry into our country once again, and for that we should be ashamed.
