Fikile Mbalula calls for all political prisoners to be released

Minister of Sport and Recreation Fikile Mbalula has called for the release of all political prisoners.

Mbalula made the call on Monday outside the Constitutional Court where the ANC handed over a memorandum calling for a review of the decision to grant parole to Chris Hani’s assassin Janusz Walus.

Last week, the high court in Pretoria ruled that Walus be released within 14 days after serving 23 years in jail.

Mbalula says all political prisoners should be released regardless of their party affiliation.
