Japanese author provokes furious South African response by suggesting a new apartheid

South Africa’s ambassador to Japan wrote to the newspaper saying Miss Sono’s
proposal was “shameful and extravagant”, and “tolerated and
glorified apartheid”.

Mohau Pheko said apartheid was a crime against humanity that could never be
justified in the 21st century in any country.

Miss Sono’s suggestion also sparked outrage among her compatriots.

“So while the rest of the civilised world was condemning apartheid, Sono
decided that she rather liked it, and now wants to bring it back,”
wrote a blogger on the Japan Times website. “And she is a government
appointment on an education panel?”

The right-wing Japanese government has distanced itself from Miss Sono, saying
she had been an education adviser some time ago and had no current relations
with government.

After years for strict immigration policies which meant that only two per cent
of its population is foreign, Japan is considering opening its doors to
large-scale immigration in a bid to head off the dual problems of a
shrinking and ageing population.
