EFF shares video after Sona drama 14 February 2020 - 09:51 By Cebelihle Bhengu Former president FW de Klerk was called an apartheid apologist and 'murderer' by the EFF during Sona on Thursday. Image: Loanna Hoffmann The EFF has shared a video of former president FW de Klerk saying more people died because of genocide than due to apartheid. The video is from two weeks ago. The former president was reflecting on his 1990 decision to lift the ban on liberation movements and free political prisoners, including Nelson Mandela. He said while masses were killed during apartheid, more died due to genocide, a statement which saw many accuse him of trying to play down the criminality of apartheid. “Apartheid cannot be compared with genocide. There was never genocide under apartheid. Many [more] people died because of black-on-black violence than because of apartheid.” He acknowledged that the apartheid regime had a hand in inciting black-on-black violence, but also said he took steps to end it. “Absolutely, I took steps about that, I appointed the Goldstone Commission and we fired or put on retirement more than 28 senior officers in the defence force. I called police and said 'you are no longer involved in politics, your task is to safeguard the people of SA'. We did take steps.” The full interview is on SABC Online . [MUST WATCH]: This is why the EFF in Parliament demanded that De Klerk be removed from the house. Read more: Times LIVE

Rerig😠Apartheid cannot be compared to Genocide because it is Genocide. What's your actual point? Oh so now it's down to quantity..... Bloody pathetic statement This unrepentant son of the devil. Sies Isithwalandwe Agree True. It's the same I beg to differ, scores of black people lost their lives and their livelihoods including land and stock.

The United Nations declared apartheid a crime against humanity in 1973. And whilst we are on the subject of genocides. Apparently in 1994 the Rwanda genocide involved weapons supplied by De Klerks' governement. He has more blood on his hands than people know. Paldron of course it cant............. but its time to get over it!!!! VictimMentality

WATCH: 'De Klerk must leave this house,' says Julius MalemaAs expected proceedings in parliament were brought to a screeching halt by the EFF ahead of President Cyril Ramaphosa's state of the nation address on Thursday evening. Chair Thandi with the EFF matching outfit i smell a rat Ja I support them on that he live the house De klerk deserves to be fed to pigs.

In 2 generations time the ZumaPhosa era will alos be regarded as a crime against humanity, and all those going on about De Klerk will be the ones whose fingers will be pointed at Yes but is a crime against humanity. So FW De Klerk must be prosecuted. Very rich coming from the murderer As much as i dont like him, here he is 100% correct

Wanyela. Apartheid ke crime. A tlogele go defender masepa Apartheid was a crime against humanity. Any system placing one race above another is. Where do you think racial policies in Sa now are taking us? The mistake is in the definitions. Otherwise one could argue the same for all minorities around the world. And let's face it in SA if there was a 'genocide' the population would be 80% White and 20% black Indian and coloured. There was genocide during the Mfcane however.

🙄So this will be milked to DEATH it seems. Anything to get that traffic to site and increase ad revenue ne Times Live? That's very nice coming from an apartheid beneficiary True. Because genocide always recite in black on black hate nje

EFF disrupts SONA over De Klerk then Gordhan | IOL NewsThe EFF on Thursday requested that former South African president FW De Klerk leave the National Assembly where President Cyril Ramaphosa was set to deliver his State of the Nation Address. SONA SONA2020 I will never vote for EFF, they simply acting childish Thandi Modise is strong to deal with this hooliganism. She can govern this country. TheMercurySA De Klerk was never a president of the RSA, he was rather a president of the APARTHEID WHITE MINORITY. Anyone who recognize De Klerk as president of the republic, also endorse apartheid.

EFF disrupts Sona: De Klerk must leave, Gordhan must be firedEFF leader says FW de Klerk's presence is an insult to victims of political violence Our little bantustan having an embarresing evening. And the eff failed in that point of order..... Apartheid illegitimate president.

‘What do we stand for?’ Zindzi Mandela scolds ANC as she enters FW de Klerk SONA debate | IOL NewsTaking to social media, Zindzi Mandela, who is South Africa’s Ambassador to Denmark and Mandela's daughter, scoffed at the ANC’s defence of de Klerk. SONA2020 SONA As if Zindzi is one to speak? Is this going to be this weeks outrage now? KhethaMabaso31 Timing though... Yesterday's events should lead to the discussion of how de klerk should be regarded in the modern democracy. No doubt, people were killed in his reign as the apartheid president, but he was also a deputy president after the democratic elections.

It was not De Klerk's kindness that Mandela was released from prison - RamaphosaPresident Cyril Ramaphosa says that it was not the kindness of FW de Klerk that led to the release of the late former President Nelson Mandela from prison, but the pressure the apartheid government faced. Ramaphosa was speaking at the 30th anniversary of the release of Mandela from Victor Verster prison after spending 27 years in prison. Stop reporting with your racism now.
