President Uhuru Kenyatta has sent a message of condolence to South Africa following the death of the country’s former Head of State Frederik Willem de Klerk.
FW, 85, served as South Africa’s Head of State between 1989 and 1994 and played a key role in the country’s transition to democracy from apartheid, a feat that earned him a Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 alongside former President Nelson Mandela.
“His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta has sent a message of condolence and comfort to President Cyril Ramaphosa and the people of the Republic of South Africa following the death of the country’s former Head of State Frederik Willem de Klerk,” Uhuru said.
South Africa’s last white president died on Thursday morning at his home in Cape Town.
The FW de Klerk Foundation said in a statement that the FW died peacefully at his home after a long illness.
“Former President FW de Klerk died peacefully at his home in Fresnaye earlier this morning following his struggle against mesothelioma cancer,” the statement said.
