FW de Klerk, the last president of apartheid South Africa, dies aged 85

The Guardian says South Africa’s last white president, FW de Klerk, who with Nelson Mandela oversaw the end of apartheid, has died in Cape Town aged 85.

“Former president FW de Klerk died peacefully at his home in Fresnaye earlier this morning following his struggle against mesothelioma cancer,” the FW de Klerk Foundation said in a statement.

De Klerk, who jointly won the Nobel peace prize with Mandela, leaves behind a complicated legacy in a country still scarred by the consequences of the brutal institutionalised system of white-minority rule that he helped usher out.
