- Ndlozi took to Twitter to school De Klerk about why apartheid was indeed a crime against humanity
- De Klerk is an 'un-rehabilitated and unrepentant apartheid apologist', according to Nldozi
- The De Klerk Foundation retracted and apologised for a statement that apartheid was not a crime against humanity
Twitter saw a furious thread from EFF's Mbuyiseni Ndlozi after FW de Klerk denied on national television that apartheid was a crime against humanity.
According to Times Live, that statement led to the EFF calling for him to leave President Cyril Ramaphosa's state of the nation address (SONA) in Parliament on Thursday.
In one of his tweets Ndlozi says, "De Klerk is an un-rehabilitated & unrepentant apartheid apologist. Apartheid was about subjugation of African Humanity. It evolved from colonization whose existence caused a genocide against the Khoi & the San of the Cape. De Klerk’s people, the Dutch led this genocide!"
In his tweets, Ndlozi educated South Africans about what apartheid aimed to do, especially to the black people of South Africans.
The De Klerk Foundation has however apologised and retracted the statement:
"The FW De Klerk Foundation has accordingly decided to withdraw its statement of 15 February unconditionally and apologises for the confusion."
