ANC Slams NGOs for ‘Apartheid Denialism’

The ANC dismisses claims by FW De Klerk that the party is responsible for the widening inequality gap in the country

The African National Congress (ANC) in KwaZulu-Natal has dismissed claims by former president, FW De Klerk, that the party is responsible for the widening inequality gap in the country.

The party’s provincial secretary, Sihle Zikalala, points out that, "The ANC...views De Klerk's comments as nothing more than a red herring to deflect attention from the shocking figures which were released by Stats SA [Statistics South Africa] as part of Census 2011 and which showed that white South Africans are still way better off economically than their fellow black compatriots."

Zikalala, argues that the De Klerk Foundation is a proof that the discourse of apartheid denialism in South Africa is ‘in the ascendancy’, adding that apartheid did not end in 1994 when the democratic government took over.
