The last white president of South Africa’s apartheid government, FW De Klerk died Thursday aged 85 after a battle with cancer.
He is the one who negotiated a peaceful transfer of power to a Black-led government under Nelson Mandela.
In a video released Thursday by his Foundation, FW de Klerk, in his final words said apartheid was wrong. He said:
Since the early 80s, my views changed completely… In my heart of hearts, I realised that apartheid was wrong.
