Wow! Denying the Dalai Lama a visa, that's what I call self-righteous.

Or maybe it suppresses speech, shows South Africa kowtowing to Chinese interests and promotes illiberal politics inconsistent with the South African constitution

I could be wrong though.  it could be 'an independent, sovereign decision' as Ronnie Mamoepa says.

Hmm... methinks kitty represents my opinion well.
