South Africa: Apartheid Was Not a Crime Against Humanity – AfriForum CEO

JOHANNESBURG- Afriforum CEO Kallie Kriel was on Eusebius McKenzie show on Monday, were they were debating the function of Afriforum and what the body does, including farm murders, during the discussion Kriel said that apartheid was not a crime against humanity.

McKaiser afterwards took to his Twitter page and said,  “Kallie Kriel tells me ‘I don’t think Apartheid was a crime against humanity.’ WTF [sic]”.

To explain his statement, Kriel called News24 to explain the context of what he had said during the interview.

Kriel also said “apartheid was wrong.”

“He asked me for my views on apartheid and I stated that we do not justify apartheid. We believed that the system infringed on the dignity of people on the basis of race.”

“We do not beat around the bush about that. What I said to Eusebius is that a crime against humanity is the gassing of six million Jews in gas chambers. In my view, you cannot equate that to the 700 people that were killed by the security police during apartheid.”

Kriel made a remarkable claim that apartheid only killed 700 people, providing no proof to this claim.

“It was wrong to infringe on the rights of the people… [but this] cannot be equated to (Adolf) Hitler or communism. That equation cannot be made. You cannot equate crimes against humanity with apartheid.

“There was not a mass killing of people.”
