Johannesburg - The ANC on Monday condemned the brief detention of party stalwart Tokyo Sexwale in the United States.
“This affront on the rights and dignity of comrade Tokyo Sexwale necessitates an unconditional apology to him and the people of South Africa from the US administration,” African National Congress spokesman Jackson Mthembu said in a statement.
“(We) call upon the US to remove from its terrorist profiling lists all those included because they fought against apartheid.”
The New Age reported earlier that immigration officials detained Sexwale at the John F Kennedy International Airport in New York.
His lawyer Leslie Makhabela said: “They alleged he posed a threat to international security.”
