The PAC adds its voice to those condemning the release of Chris Hani’s assassin

The Pan Africanist Congress of Azania says it is unacceptable for Chris Hani’s killer Janusz Walus to be released on parole. Walus, who had served 23 years in prison for the murder of Hani, was granted parole last week Thursday by the North Gauteng High Court. The High Court ruled that Walus must be released within the next two weeks.

Hani was assassinated on 10 April 1993 at his Boksburg home. At the time of his death Hani was the leader of the South African Communist Party. PAC spokesperson Kenneth Mokhathle says they are disappointed but not surprised. “The judge was racist during the judgement of parole” said Mokhathle.

The PAC has been fighting for the unconditional release of their military wing(APLA) members, with no success.
