The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) says they reject the apology made by the FW De Klerk Foundation on Monday.
The EFF says De Klerk’s apology lacks sincerity and relevance, as the individual who was the source of these hateful views, remains unrepentant on his comments.
“The EFF unequivocally rejects the F.W De Klerk’s Foundation’s apology regarding its statement n Apartheid not being a crime against humanity,” EFF said on Monday afternoon.
“We believe that the time for empty apologies in South Africa as a means of reconciliation is over,
“The acceptance of apologies without justice is exactly why black South Africans find themselves landless, undermined and on the outskirts of humanity and the economy”
EFF disrupted parliament on Thursday during the President’s State of the Nation Address. The party wanted De Klerk to be booted out following the remarks he made on an SABC interview stating that apartheid was not a crime against humanity.
ANC spokesperson Pule Mabe earlier today agreed that the EFF were right to call for De Klerk to be ousted in parliament before the State of the Nation Address. However, the party NEC member Zizi Kodwa slammed the EFF during the SONA and wanting to kick out FW De Klerk during the SONA address.
