The goverment is breaking the constitution
The South African Government has now for the third time broken the constitution of the republic by denying The Honorable Dalai Lama into South Africa it is a disgrace of our nation and the values we hold and a slap in the face of the people who fought and died for freedom and democracy in South Africa, I believe it is illegal and should immediately be taken up in the constitutional as it goes against chapter two of our constitution Section 21 provides that “Everyone has the right to freedom of movement. Everyone has the right to leave the Republic.” Hence these provisions are applicable to all humans, while the following are limited to South African citizens. “Every citizen has the right to enter, to remain in and to reside anywhere in, the Republic. Every citizen has the right to a passport. to take this part of the constitution to literally and to claim he is not a South African citizen goes beyond breaking just our own constitution but also international law as he is not a criminal or a terrorist he is only a spiritual leader of a peaceful people living under tyranny imagine the Anc was not allowed visas into European countries during apartheid. it clearly states that every human has the right to freedom of movement in the republic but only South African has the right to enter and reside but we have exceptions that state the government may disallow certain individuals on the basis of terrorism and threat level to the republic . Clearly the Dalai does not pose a threat to South Africa also chapter nine subsection three states that, The state may not unfairly discriminate directly or indirectly against anyone on one or more grounds, including race, gender, sex, pregnancy, marital status, ethnic or social origin, colour, sexual orientation, age, disability, religion, conscience, belief, culture, language and birth. We need a referendum on this!
