Afrikaner academics declare apartheid crime against humanity, favour restitution
Ten Afrikaner academics have apologised for apartheid and have acknowledged it was a crime against humanity.
Business Day reports that the group calling itself 'Concerned South Africans' released a declaration on Sunday.
This follows FW De Klerk's denial which he later withdrew.
Clement Manyathela spoke to Thabo Mbeki Foundation trustee Willie Esterhuyse to explain the motive behind the declaration and why he chose to sign it.
Since the 70s, I was very much from a moral point of view, not just concerned about the effect of apartheid on individuals but also of the whole system. So the reason fro my being involved in this project comes from two or three decades ago.Willie Esterhuyse, Trustee - Thabo Mbeki Foundation
I am very much in favour of restitution and I think this is one of the failures of the TRC .Willie Esterhuyse, Trustee - Thabo Mbeki Foundation
White South Africans, including Afrikaans- and English-speaking have to do much more than just say apartheid is gone.Willie Esterhuyse, Trustee - Thabo Mbeki Foundation
