FF+ leader talks to Zuma

2010-11-03 22:25

Cape Town - The Afrikaans language and the Anglo-Boer War were among topics that formed part of discussions between President Jacob Zuma and Freedom Front Plus leader Pieter Mulder in Cape Town on Wednesday.

Speaking during a photo opportunity at Tuynhuys on Friday afternoon, Mulder, who also serves as deputy agriculture minister in Zuma's Cabinet, said the discussions had been long.

"We had a long discussion this morning, as well as this afternoon... we discussed the media situation, the Afrikaans language, education issues, and I can continue on that sort of list."

Zuma described the discussions as having been "absolutely fine".

"I'm always very keen to discuss the Afrikaans issues," he said, adding that there had been "very good reasons" he had invited Mulder for talks.

"And they are not party reasons, they are reasons for national interest," Zuma said, but did not elaborate.

Mulder said the discussions had even touched on the Anglo-Boer War.

Zuma responded, laughing: "We even talked about General (Koos) De La Rey!"
