South Africa’s last white president Frederik Willem (FW) de Klerk has kicked the bucket at 85 years old.

Mr de Klerk was accounted for dead Thursday morning at his home in Cape Town as per an assertion by the FW de Klerk Foundation.

He was head of state between September 1989 and May 1994 and in 1990 declared he was delivering against politically-sanctioned racial segregation pioneer Nelson Mandela.

The move close by additional activities prompted multi-party surveys in 1994 which stopped politically-sanctioned racial segregation time South Africa.

FW de Klerk became one of South Africa’s two representative presidents after the multi-party races in 1994 that saw Mr Mandela become president.
