The FW de Klerk Foundation unconditionally withdrew its statement that apartheid was not a crime against humanity.
FW de Klerk said in a statement on Monday afternoon that he apologized for the confusion, anger and pain it caused.
De Klerk says he noted the tremendous reaction after the EFF attack last Thursday night at the state of the nation speech.
This comes after the EFF leader said at the State of the Nation Address that there was a murderer in the house.
Some Twitter users pointed out that the ANC and EFF were only using de Klerk as a scapegoat for their failure.

At comrades stop shifting the blame.
It all started when de Klerk said in an interview that he does not fully agree that apartheid was a crime against humanity.
