Anti-apartheid campaigner to visit Rugby Union headquarters

9:36 am on 20 August 2012

An African anti-apartheid campaigner who testified against the New Zealand Rugby Union in the 1980s will visit its headquarters in Wellington on Monday.

Reverend Arnold Stofile was a witness in the case that stopped the All Blacks touring South Africa in 1985.

He was sentenced to prison for four years when he returned home, but later became Sports Minister in a post-apartheid government.

He has been in Wellington at a conference to mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of the African National Congress.
