A South African man’s attempts to climb Mount Everest has been postponed due to circumstances surrounding the outbreak of the violence in Tibet. “China has restricted all people entering Tibet, resulting in the postponement of our trip to March 2009, being the next Everest climbing season,” said Robby Kojetin, who was planning to use the expedition to raise funds to fight cancer. “If we choose to view these events in a positive light, we have been granted 12 months to continue raising money for the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA), allowing us to get closer to our one million rand goal.” Panapress.
