SA siding with oppressors: Tutu
Johannesburg - South Africa was siding with oppressors in the way it handled a visa application by the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu said on Wednesday.
"I'm a very sad old man who had thought that you guys approximated the kind of values that we support and what has happened is unconscionable," Tutu said in an interview on Talk Radio 702.
He said the international community had always believed that South Africa would side with the oppressed, considering what the country had gone through when apartheid was dismantled.
"And here we are siding with one of the most vicious oppressors and we are scared to say no," Tutu said.
"All the people involved in the struggle must be turning in their graves."
