About Johannes Albertus Munnik Hertzog

Johannes Albertus Munnik Hertzog, - 4 July 1899, Bloemfontein – 4 November 1982, Pretoria was an Afrikaner politician, cabinet minister, and founding leader of the Herstigte Nasionale Party. He served as the South African Minister of Health from 1954 to 1958 and as Minister of Post and Telecommunications from 1958 to 1968. As the latter, Hertzog is famous for his refusal of implementing television service in South Africa. In 1969, after being purged from the National Party for his reactionary and exclusive Afrikaner Nationalist views, Hertzog founded the Herstigte Nasionale Party ("Reconstituted National Party"). The HNP was opposed to what it viewed as the National Party's deviation from its founding principles under Hendrik Verwoerd's successor, John Vorster.
