Nelson Mandela SNUBBED Jeremy Corbyn after anti-Apartheid protests and his ANC colleagues viewed the Labour man as a ‘hindrance’ to their movement, book claims

Jeremy Corbyn was allegedly snubbed by Nelson Mandela because he was considered a ‘hindrance’ to the anti-apartheid movement, it was reported last night. The Labour MP was arrested in 1984 for picketing outside the South African embassy to protest the ANC leader’s imprisonment.

But attempts to gain Mr Mandela’s approval for the campaign were repeatedly refused because it was run by an hard-Left splinter group, The Daily Telegraph claimed. Mr Corbyn was part of a four-year protest organised by the City of London Anti-Apartheid Group (CLAAG), which demanded Mr Mandela’s release from prison during the 1980s.
