‘If De Klerk gets a state funeral, we must disrupt it,’ says Pearl Thusi
South Africa’s internationally renowned actress Pearl Thusi has vowed to disrupt apartheid’s President FW de Klerk’s funeral if he gets a state funeral.
Thusi who recently became vocal against the ANC run government took to twitter expressing how happy she was after hearing news of the passing of FW de Klerk.
The 85 year old apartheid President died on Thursday due to mesothelioma cancer.
“Former President FW de Klerk died peacefully at his home in Fresnaye earlier this morning after his struggle against mesothelioma cancer,” the FW de Klerk foundation said in a statement.
Most South African celebrities shared how this news brought joy to their hearts because of how de Klerk was instrumental during the apartheid regime.
In a series of tweets Pearl shared her strong opinions saying he didn’t deserve a state funeral and she would mobilize people to disrupt the funeral.
“If FW de Klerk gets a state funeral that would be a huge middle finger to the people who suffered under the apartheid regime in this country,” wrote Pearl.
She continued, “In fact we must disrupt that funeral if it’s declared a state funeral. There’s just no way.”
She added that she felt nothing about the death.
“I feel a bit weird to celebrate anyone’s death. I’m indifferent about him being dead or alive. Maybe he was already dead to me because I’m definitely not sad.”
