Sy seun, Roelof Botha, het in ‘n onderhoud met eNCA gesê dat sy pa “’n redelike moeilike lewe gehad het”.

Volgens Pik se vrou, Ina, is hy in September in ‘n Pretoriase hospitaal opgeneem.

Roelof Frederik “Pik” Botha is op 27 April 1932 gebore. Pik (sy bynaam was Pikkewyn na aanleiding van sy postuur as hy ‘n pak klere gedra het) was beskou as die mees liberale minister in die ou Nasionale Party regering. In 2000 was daar gerugte dat Pik by die ANC aangesluit het. Hy het die gerugte ten sterkste ontken, maar bevestig dat hy wel die destydse President Thabo Mbeki ondersteun.

Pik het twee seuns, die musikant, Piet Botha, en die ekonoom, Roelof Botha, en twee dogters, Anna Hertzog en die kunstenaar Lien Botha.

Geen begrafnisreëlings is nog bekend gemaak nie.
