Mandela tweeted on Friday morning that her mother, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, and others suffered at the hands of the apartheid police while De Klerk was president.

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) disrupted proceedings for an hour on Thursday night, demanding that De Klerk leave the sitting and describing him as a mass murderer.

In a recent TV interview, De Klerk said he did not agree that apartheid was a crime against humanity as declared by the United Nations. 

Mandela adds that De Klerk justified what happened to her mother and other freedom fighters.
