JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - Prominent South
African businessman and anti-apartheid stalwart Tokyo Sexwale was arrested in
New York after his name was on a list of people banned from entering the United
States, national broadcaster SABC said on Sunday, citing his lawyer.
Sexwale, a rival of President Jacob Zuma who was ousted as housing minister
in a cabinet reshuffle in July, was arrested at John F Kennedy International
Airport while on a business trip, SABC said, citing Lesley Mkhabela
Some anti-apartheid activists were banned from visiting the United States
during apartheid, which ended in 1994. The ban has been lifted but not all the
names have been removed from the list, Mkhabela told the SABC.
"He has instructed us to take the matter up with the authorities of the U.S.
so we will address the letter to the U.S. Embassy in South Africa," Mkhabela was
quoted as saying on the broadcaster's website.
No one was immediately available for comment at Mkhabela's law firm. The Port
Authority of New York and New Jersey, which runs the airport, did not
immediately respond to a request for a comment.
Alongside former President Nelson Mandela, Sexwale spent years in South
Africa's Robben Island prison for his opposition to white-minority rule.
A charismatic politician, Sexwale later became a leading member of the ruling
African National Congress and an influential businessman, founding the
investment firm Mvelaphanda Group.

The new U.S. policy: If you are a foreign political
leader we'll tap your phone and arrest you when you visit the U.S. If you're a
mexican drug-dealer you can walk across the border unimpeded, take up residence
in a "sanctuary city" and when arrested the cops won't be allowed to even ask if
you are here legally.
