South Africa deny Dalai Lama a Visa & S.A Sports teams Cursed.

Isaac Lungu | 7:41 PM |

The past week marked the occurrence of two disasters in South African sports. The coach of the national soccer team decided to apply his own interpretation to the official tournament rules of the Africa Cup of Nations, leading the whole nation to believe that they had qualified for the Africa Cup 2012 in Equatorial Guinea......

They celebrated thinking they'd qualified......



But it turns out they didn't.....

The Springboks Rugby team, arguably one of  the tournament favorites, and certainly favorites for that particular game, lost 9-11 vs Australia in a heart-stopper. The nation blames poor officiating but having watched every minute of that game, I blame something else. A cosmic force stood on the goal/try line and rendered any attempt South Africa made to score into nothingness. Surge after surge ended with no points........:LIKE A CURSE!!, ~ "A plague o" both your houses." 


BUT WHY...........
Dalai Lama denied visa by South Africa
BECAUSE......

South Africa wouldn't give the Dalai Lama an agent of peace, a visa and as a result every deity, including but not limited to: Jesus Christ, Allah, Zeus, Buddah, Hare Krishna and Joseph Smith apparently teamed up to make South Africans have one hell of a miserable weekend.

That's my theory........
 .
The Dalai Lama and his entourage had expected to visit South Africa in October and had dutifully submitted visa applications and passports. The Lama's agenda included attendance to Archbishop Tutu's Birthday on October 6th and a number of public talks. The Dalai Lama was forced to cancel his trip when the South Africa government refused to permit him entry. “Since the South African government seems to find it inconvenient to issue a visa to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, His Holiness has decided to call off this visit to South Africa." That was the official statement from the office of the Dalai Lama. The statement did not address the question as to why South Africa did not grant the visa, and the South African Embassy in New Delhi did not immediately respond to a request for clarification but officials in South Africa said they followed normal procedures in reviewing the visa request.

Although the official reason is unclear, [sources] believe South Africa refused to grant the holy man entry to avoid jeopardizing their foreign affairs with China. China has accused the Dalai Lama of trying to split Tibet from China and create an independent state. The Dalai Lama has said he does not favor independence but has criticized what he calls Chinese repression of Tibet’s religious and cultural traditions ~ because he's a good guy.
 
The Desmond Tutu Peace Center, an advocacy group co-founded by Desmond Tutu himself, and the Pretoria branch of the Office of Tibet, the official name of Tibet’s government in exile, issued a joint statement calling the fiasco “profoundly disrespectful of two Nobel Peace laureates who are among the most revered spiritual leaders on earth.” That statement coincided with a visit to China by South Africa’s vice president, Kgalema Motlanthe, who signed multiple trade and development agreements.
