The former South African president FW de Klerk recorded a message to the nation shortly before his death on Thursday, in which he apologised for ‘the pain and the hurt and the indignity and the damage’ the apartheid regime had caused. De Klerk oversaw the end of white minority rule as the country’s last apartheid president and shared the Nobel peace prize with Nelson Mandela, but was a controversial figure in the country.
