Tutu visit draws ire of town councillor - Independent.ie
Hear hear! Nice to see a politician stating the obvious once in a while31 March 2013
Controversy has erupted after a town councillor said that Archbishop Desmond Tutu would be better off doing something for his own people in South Africa than coming to Ballina, Co Mayo, to "endorse" a new Mary Robinson Centre in the town.
"He and other members of the South African elite have let their own people down – and I'm including Nelson Mandela in this, although I know you are not meant to say anything about him because he's a living saint," Councillor Gerry Ginty told the Sunday Independent yesterday.
