De Klerk needs to retire and shut up. He just makes bad even worse. Is him who apologised or his foundation? Repentance is always good. He is old. But.... How could be so unconscionable? I cannot but wonder what he will be remembered for now, the Nobel peace laureate, or the dogmatic 'technical expert' on an irrelevant question, pertaining to the heinous system of Apartheid.
If he didn't see anything WRONG with Apartheid then he should have fought to NOT allow SOUTH AFRICA become a democratic nation. You are old in age does NOT mean you have sense🚶 Had a conversation with Thabo Mbeki, which I presume, opened his mind! Really?! Malema back on the Pravin bus tomorrow 🥱 If he didn't know that it was a crime against humanity a week ago, I doubt he's sincerely apologetic
He's piece of dirt 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 quote NelsonMandela and all if forgotten siyajwayelwa la..... Is he on drugs or having some late 60’s episodes? I refuse to accept that this fella is medically sound, maybe he wants to make a comeback politically?

Thabo Mbeki strategically saved his buddy. 2-fold action 1. He didn't know 2. Now he knows and apologizes What BS!! Well someone woke up and smelt the coffee! When in doubt quote Tata. I am glad you saw your errors Oom Frederik. Takes a big man to admit to his mistakes. I think he is only saying this because he sees that people are outrageous...

ANC slams FW de Klerk Foundation for denying apartheid was crime against humanityThe ruling party is now saying it wants denials of apartheid's criminality to be criminalised in a manner similar to holocaust denial in Germany. EFF set the goal posts and ANC follow,trend we set for this confused ANC Which Anc? No come on man how many Anc's we have in this country? I don't think he denied it, he pointed out some facts. But if the ANC wants to criminilise Apartheid denial like the Holocaust denial then they need to start jailing 6 million blacks.
