The ANC in the Western Cape has paid tribute to Reverend Gerald John Arthur…

The ANC in the Western Cape has paid tribute to Reverend Gerald John Arthur de Klerk of the United Congregational Church in Oudtshoorn. The 79-year old De Klerk passed away on Monday following a short illness. ANC Provincial Spokesperson, Dennis Cruywagen says De Klerk was at the forefront of the struggle for liberation in the mid 1980’s. De Klerk was also a member of the Southern Cape Council of Churches. Cruywagen says he used the church to give refuge to political activists to hold meetings and political gathering when this was prohibited by the apartheid police. “In 1985 when PW Botha declared a state of emergency, the good reverend was one of the first people who was detained and held without trial for a period of three months he really has a huge legacy and we are very sad at his passing and we express our condolences to his family.” De Klerk served as minister of the Bridgton congregation for more than 40 years.
