Ronald Lamola denies Chris Hani killer Janusz Waluś parole ... again
Justice Minister Ronald Lamola on Monday denied Janusz Waluś parole again.
In 1993 Waluś killed the then leader of the South African Communist Party (SACP) Chris Hani in what he said was a plan to push the country into a race war.
He is currently serving a life sentence at Kgosi Mampuru Correctional Centre.
Lamola said it was clear that the political assassination of Hani was executed with the intention to create chaos and mayhem in the country.
Clement Manyathela chats to Justice Department spokesperson Crispin Phiri to give more insight on the matter.
The decision was taken upon balancing both positive and negative factors that are attributed to Waluś. Granting him parole will not give effect to the severity of the sentence that the court had wanted.Crispin Phiri, Spokesperson - Justice Department
He says the court ruled that the killing was a cold-blooded attack.
