By the early 21st century, Pieter Willem Botha's name had become a by-word for unaccountable government and the autocratic exercise of power.

 

Botha, who died on Tuesday night at his home, Die Anker, near Wilderness in the Western Cape, aged 90, was the archetype "kragdadige" Afrikaner and a worthy successor to John Vorster, whom he replaced as prime minister in the wake of the information scandal in late 1978.

 

It was he who coined the phrases "Total Onslaught" and "Total Strategy" to justify the ever-greater use of foce to suppress growing black resistance to white-only rule.
