GAUTENG - The Pan Africanist Congress has repeated its calls for the arrest of former president FW de Klerk for his role in the apartheid government.
The PAC specifically wants de Klerk to face justice for his role in the Mpendulo Massacre in Mthatha.
Five minors lost their lives in the massacre when the SADF raided Sicelo Mpendulo's house in 1993.
They had wrongly believed that the house belonged to the APLA, the militant wing of the PAC. FW de Klerk, as president, had authorised the raid.
