Mugabe, Dalai Lama: can you spot the crucial difference?

What's the difference between these two famous people?

Can't spot any differences?

One is a revered world leader whose compassion and humility is admired by millions, and whose life has been devoted to freeing his people from oppression. And the other one is just some old monk from Tibet.

Or that's what the South African Government seems to think.

South Africa's President, President Kgalema Motlanthe, does not want the Dalai Lama in the country because the Tibetan spiritual leader's presence will "divert attention" from the World Cup celebrations. Link.
