A group of activists are expected to gather outside the offices of the FW De Klerk Foundation in Plattekloof in Cape Town today. They will be protesting against the statement made by former Apartheid Era President De Klerk that he did not believe that apartheid was a crime against humanity. He made the comments which have been widely slammed by political parties and NGOs during a television interview with SABCNEWS more than a week ago. Last week Thursday during the state of the nation address, EFF leader Julius Malema rose on a point of order and called De Klerk a murderer and man with blood on his hands- the party also demanded that De Klerk leave parliament. On Friday, the FW de Klerk Foundation released a statement, also denying that apartheid was a crime against humanity and saying it was only declared as such due to Soviet propaganda. De Klerk and his foundation have since retracted their statements and have issued an apology.
