(ANI): Nelson Mandela has banned catwalk queen Naomi Campbell from
appearing on stage at his 90th birthday concert. According to the
Daily Mail of London, the former South African leader told
organisers to take the 38-year-old supermodel off the bill for
London's Hyde Park charity event after she was fined and sentenced
to 200 hours' community service for assaulting two police officers
on board a British Airways flight at Heathrow in April.
Mandela felt the arrest was at odds with his charity's goals,
the paper said, reports the New York Daily News. The concert will
raise funds for the 46664 AIDS charity organized by the revered
figure. The five-digit number was Mandela's inmate ID during his 27
years in prison under apartheid.
