Overvaal: Where is the moral leadership?

Shortly after I took up my post as South African Ambassador to Ireland in 2001 the Holy Cross dispute occurred in Ardoyne – a part of Belfast in Northern Ireland.

Like many towns in apartheid South Africa, Ardoyne was segregated. Unlike South Africa it was not on the basis of race, but religion. Protestants lived in one area and Catholics in another.
