NEHAWU Slams De Klerk’s CNN Comments

NEHAWU demands that De Klerk’s Nobel Peace Prize be retracted over comments made on CNN

The National Health and Allied Workers’ Union (NEHAWU) has demanded that former president FW de Klerk’s Nobel Peace Prize be retracted over comments he made in an interview with United State broadcaster CNN.

In a press statement, NEHAWU spokesperson, Sizwe Pamla, points out that, “De Klerk exposed himself to be an unapologetic proponent of a racist, facist system that oppressed the majority.”

During the interview, De Klerk then reportedly said about the homeland system: “But the concept of giving, as the Czechs have it now, and the Slovaks have it, of saying that ethnic unity with one culture with one language [everyone] can be happy and can fulfil their democratic aspirations in an own state, that is not repugnant.”
