The FW de Klerk Foundation takes pleasure in presenting its annual Human Rights Report Card indicating where, in our opinion, South Africa has been making progress with regard to human rights and where it has been regressing.
Ladies and gentlemen, if I may very briefly share with you the take-away in conclusion. FW de Klerk gave me two. The one is there is nothing wrong with the Constitution. If the chefs ruin the meal, don’t blame the recipe, and Thuli made the same point. Secondly, that he is cautiously optimistic and supportive of what Cyril Ramaphosa is trying to do.
On 2 February 1990 Mr De Klerk stood up in Parliament to make a speech. It should have been an ordinary speech, it should have been a runof-the-mill speech in which President De Klerk would be espousing the policies of the National Party. But instead, in that speech he turned on its head 500 years of history.
The conference publication contains welcoming remarks by Dave Steward of the FW de Klerk Foundation, as well as Dr Holger Dix, of the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS). Keynote speeches were delivered by: Dr Mathews Phosa, Rhoda Kadalie, Flip Buys, Justice Albie Sachs, Dr Fernand de Varennes and former President FW de Klerk.
