Veteran anti-apartheid campaigner Desmond Tutu has said he will not be going to Nelson Mandela’s funeral because he has not been invited.
"I would have loved to attend the service to say a final farewell to someone I loved and treasured," the retired archbishop said in a statement.
But he did not want to gatecrash “a private family funeral.”
According to statements from the South African government to local newspaper The New Age, the onus was on him to ask for an invite. To which we say: Sometimes it’s worth making the call yourself, South African government.
