He invited the Indonesian mass murderer General Suharto to South Africa and gave him the country’s highest award. Pilger shows the capitulation of the Mandela administration nexr his welcoming of foreign capital to run amuck amongst South Africa. No trivia or quizzes yet. The UK government goes and takes all the people who have lived there for years, picks them up and dumps them in the slums of Mauritius.
