General JC Smuts

General  JC Smuts
Parliament Square, London.

"But Mandela’s most interesting conversations would be with Winston Churchill and Jan Smuts who stand close together near the north east end of the Square. Churchill, massive, glowering like a bull, Smuts striding out with pious purpose. We remember these two men, contemporaries and friends, for other reasons. Smuts, although a South African Afrikaner, was was the only signatory to the peace treaties that ended both First and Second World Wars. And he was instrumental in setting up both the League of Nations and the United Nations. Smuts was the favoured replacement as Prime Minister if anything should happen to Churchill during World War II. But in South Africa Smuts and Churchill laid the foundations of what was to become the apartheid state, the state Mandela dedicated his life to destroy. " ( from: )
