Mos Def Not Accepted in South Africa

The thoughts of a free world for Mos Def completely changed on Tuesday. South Africa’s Department of Home Affairs labeled the rapper an undesirable person, after he attempted to leave the country with his world passport. His passport is what a pacifist organization would issue to promote ‘a world without borders.’ Mos Def, who was brought up in Brooklyn, NY, and now known as Yasiin Bey, was captured in January, after he attempted to go to Ethiopia on the Cape Town International Airport, utilizing the world passport. Discharged on bail and waiting trial, Bey apologized to the Department of Home Affairs. They accepted his apology, however will no longer permit him to travel visa-free.

The visa at the focal point of the rapper’s migration failure was issued by the World Service Authority, a Washington DC-based non-benefit that promotes a world free of borders.

The administration additionally has commissions managing portfolios that any other government would, similar to vitality and training. However it’s hazy if any legislature recognizes the organization.

Today, a million people utilize the visa, including evacuees and stateless people, as indicated by the association. Edward Snowden has been issued a world travel permit. Bey’s perplexity is to some degree justifiable.

On the off chance they are accepted, it speaks to a genuine option for uprooted individuals and those rejected by their own particular governments for a heap of issues, including personality and religion. The visa depends on the 1948 United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights article 13 on the rights to leave and come back from any nation. In any case, the world and its fringes have turned out to be more mind boggling since the end of the World War II.
