'I accept that the comments that Ken Livingstone has made make it more difficult for Londoners of Jewish faith to feel that the Labour Party is a place for them,' says mayoral candidate Sadiq Khan.03:33 02.05.16 | 0 comments
Of course. It is the same as in Africa. There were not enough records of birth dates one hundred years ago. Nobody knew the real age of President Houphouet-Boigny of Ivory Coast when he died. There were even questions in the US on singer James Brown true age ! In Africa, I saw many ID cards with the date of birth mentioned as : around 1930 (for instance). They tend to claim they are older than real for several reasons, including being considered as "wise men". More respect is shown to the elders there.
