Hermann Giliomee Comments on the Current Crop of Afrikaner Leaders
Business Day‘s Paul Vecchiatto interviewed Hermann Giliomee about his thoughts on the current Afrikaner leaders and discussed some of the topics Giliomee addresses in his book, The Last Afrikaner Leaders: A Supreme Test of Power.
Giliomee commented that Afrikaners “are going through a lean period” in terms of leaders following “50 or more years of such forceful personalities”:
Afrikaners are going through a lean crop of leaders after some dominant and forceful personalities such as Hendrik Verwoerd, John Vorster, PW Botha, Van Zyl Slabbert and FW de Klerk, says historian and author Hermann Giliomee.
In an interview after a talk at the Cape Town Press Club on Tuesday, Mr Giliomee said: “After 50 or more years of such forceful personalities, they (Afrikaners) are going through a lean period (of leaders).”
