Pretoria - The South African government finds itself under immense pressure to downgrade its embassy in Tel Aviv more than ever before.
This comes as pro-Palestine organisations and human rights activists insist that South Africa should implement the ANC's Resolution taken at its 54th national conference in December to downgrade the embassy and recall its ambassador Sisa Ngombane.
Following reports that Ngombane had allegedly been reinstated this past weekend to his post as ambassador to Israel, a number of organisations and human rights groups such as the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) South African movement have condemned any actions that may indicate that Ngombane is back in office.
It accused certain officials within the ruling party for "failing and possibly refusing" action this.
"The delays are insulting and the good faith between civil society, the electorate and government is disintegrating," the movement said in a statement, adding the call to downgrade the embassy was a collective one that included churches, civil society and political parties.
