Former South African Air Force sergeant Flippie Venter is due to be released on parole after serving 13 years of his sentence.
Venter was convicted of strangling a child prostitute in Burundi and later killing his children with an R4 rifle.
The former sergeant's wife Millie survived the attack after being shot in the stomach.
A military court sentenced him to 24 years in prison for his crimes.
Millie has objected to Venter being released on parole but Correctional Services is going ahead.
Clement Manyathela speaks to Correctional Services spokesperson Singabakho Nxumalo about the reasons for granting Venter parole.
The procedure is that before any person is considered for parole there must be victim-offender dialogue. In this instance, I can confirm that some parts of the family were consulted.— Singabakho Nxumalo, Spokesperson - Correctional Services
The wife indicated that she has no interest whatsoever and her stance was that she would like the perpetrator to stand his entire sentence.— Singabakho Nxumalo, Spokesperson - Correctional Services
Nxumalo says there are a number of factors they look at when they consider granting the parole.
We look at all the variables like did this person follow all the correctional sentence plans? Did this person participate in the programmes identified? Has this person changed?— Singabakho Nxumalo, Spokesperson - Correctional Services
