Johannesburg – Local TV personality Shashi Naidoo has declined to comment on reports that she has been banned from entering Israel for 10 years.
Shashi will return home on Thursday, where it is said that Nelson Mandela’s grandson and South African Member of Parliament, Chief Mandla Mandela, will welcome her at O.R Tambo Airport in Johannesburg.
A statement released by Mandela on Thursday reads in part: "We strongly condemn Apartheid Israel’s refusal of entry to Palestine for Shashi Naidoo and this reveals the true Apartheid character of the occupation."
Kwara Kekana from BDS could not comment on reports on the length of the travel ban.
