The South African government refused to grant a visa to the Dalai Lama allowing him to enter South Africa to attend a Nobel laureates' peace conference.
That's just RUDE!
It was not so long ago that members of the South African government themselves would have been denied entry to their own country.
The reason for the refusal: trade agreements with China.

You do not have to be South African to sign.
