South Africa King Of Nudism Dies

Beau Brummell, who opened South Africa's first nudist resort, Beau Valley, and once went on national TV naked, has died.

His daughter, Cheyanne Bush, posted on Facebook that her father had died at 2am on Thursday.

Brummell opened the country's first nudist resort in 1981 which has since closed.

He had been out of the public eye for more than a decade, since he made headlines by wanting to start another nudist resort at the whites-only enclave of Orania.

"Everyone in this country now has a right to choose, and I choose 'Whites Only'."

He had planned to start a nudist resort on water at the Vaal Dam. He would commission four boats which will sail on the dam, "where people can walk around naked, drink champagne and enjoy themselves". And no gatecrashers will be tolerated, especially if you are not white.

Brummell had said his antics in the past have led people to think he is racist, but he claims this is not the case.

"I love black people. My son is married to an Indian girl. I would love to have little black grandchildren one day."

A few years prior Brummell had tried to revive Beau Valley and attempted to open a "whites only" nudist resort in KwaZulu-Natal. The South African Human Rights Commission intervened and that was the end of it.
