South African activist S'bu Zikode says he expects a grilling by security police when he arrives home in Durban.

Mr Zikode is the founder of the Shackdwellers Movement, representing the many black South Africans who still live in slums.

He flow home on Tuesday after being in New Zealand as a guest of the Mana Party's John Minto for the 30th anniversary of the 1981 Springbok tour.

Mr Zikode has told meetings around the country that the hopes of New Zealanders who protested against apartheid have been betrayed by the regime that's replaced it.

He says black South Africans are in a similar position to Maori who've have lost their land, even though a black majority now controls the country.

Mr Zikode says he expects his first call back home to be from the South African Security services, wanting to know what he's been telling New Zealanders and why he's embarrassed his country.
