I note with interest that Botha is listed as a newcomer to the list for 2004, yet he was listed in 2003. That's all.

Well spotted that eagle-eyed little visitor!

He also appeared in 92 and 94, so really this is his 4th appearance on the list. Will we get away with the 'bug in the software' excuse again?? :rip:

Sorted out now :rip:

Thanx for pointing that out Simmo

Actually, looks like P Dubya is going to make it this year. Maybe he had a word with Eugene Terre 'Blanche about keeping the "black" away from him. Maybe he arranged an armed guard for him.

[FONT=Arial][SIZE=1]I live in South Africa as a British Citizen and PW Botha was not as corrupt as people may be led to believe. The were others far more corrupt. I have never voted in any election here and would not change that. But I can say that things have not got any better here in the last 11 years of the Rainbow Nation in fact they have got progressivley worse

I used to live in the RSA during the dark days of apartheid, and while life may be more inconvenient today for the average white person living there, I'd have thought for the typical South African (i.e. black) citizen, life is far better today now that they can do things like vote, go to any beach they want, take any bus they want, etc. You know, things white volk everywhere pretty much take for granted. This is not to overlook the tragic Aids epidemic or the terrible crime statistics which currently plague the country, and I'm sure all South Africans hope the next President is more pragmatic and effective than Mbeki (Xhosa for "clueless").

As for PW, that old racist, I don't believe the DL site contends he was corrupt, although as FF notes he was the head of a regime which denied the vote as well as many of the most basic human rights to 3/4 of the population. How that crew could live with themselves is beyond me. Personally I think FW de Klerk gets a little bit of the short end of the stick, as he was as instrumental in setting SA on the right path as Nelson Mandela, but he never gets visits from Bono telling him how jolly super he is.

Anyway, as and when Botha does go I'm sure there will be far more people celebrating his passing than mourning it.

Why ask the same question twice in the space of a minute?
Why ask it on a thread about PW Botha?
Why not just use the Search function?
