RESPONSE BY FW DE KLERK TO CITY RECOMMENDATION TO RENAME TABLE BAY BOULEVARD

foter table bay boulevard“I am honoured and touched by the decision of the City of Cape Town’s Naming Committee to recommend the renaming of Table Bay Boulevard in my honour.

I would sincerely like to thank all those - including many prominent residents of the Cape - who have supported this initiative.

I would, however, like to stress that this is not an honour that I sought - since in my heart I am not at all sure that, with one or two exceptions, geographic locations should be renamed in honour of living people.

I would nevertheless be prepared to accept the honour - not on my own behalf but on behalf of all those who supported my efforts while I was President to negotiate a new non-racial constitutional democracy for all our people.”
