Lord Peter Hain, UK campaigner for justice in South Africa, says many anti-apartheid activists in the country and outside, have been deeply hurt by what is happening in the country.

Hain became a British anti-apartheid leader when he was 19, after his parents were banned from South Africa and forced into exile in the UK.
He dismantled the 1969-70 Springbok all white world tour and managed to get non-inclusive sports activities isolated from international arenas.

He says he was asked by South African whistle blowers "senior stalwarts in the ANC" to look into this matter.
