FW was wrong, and right: iLIVE
Fw de Klerk deserved the opprobrium his comments on CNN provoked. His efforts to justify apartheid at this late stage really tarnished his image, not that it was ever that bright and shiny.
However, his remarks that any party that has been in power for nearly two decades, and which has a nearly two-thirds parliamentary majority, is most probably indulging in corrupt practices, were accurate.
They say one must set a thief to catch a thief. FW's party robbed South Africa of its political rights for decades. He knows better than most how political masters get their way: It is not by being pure as the driven snow. It is by being devious and corrupt.
It is by losing one's moral compass and tending only to one's own selfish needs and damning the rest of the population.
De Klerk's comments about the present regime of the ANC are spot on.
We voted De Klerk and his political bullies out of power and it is time to do it again.
To quote US President Barack Obama: "Yes, we can."
