They want Ronald Lamola to delay Janusz Walus’s release from prison.

Janusz Waluś will forever be remembered for committing one of the biggest atrocities in South Africa's fight for liberation.

 

 

His 1993 assassination of Chris Hani tore through the hearts and minds of South Africans and took the country to the brink of disaster.

Nearly 30 years after that callous act, and numerous appeals for parole, Waluś is about to walk out of prison a free man.

Monday's Constitutional Court ruling ordering his release has opened old wounds.

The SACP says they will be appealing to the African Court on Human and people’s rights.
