Cape Town – Janusz Waluś, who was convicted in April 1993 for the murder of former South African Communist Party (SACP) leader and anti-apartheid activist Chris Hani, has been granted South African citizenship in order to serve his parole along with conditions imposed by the minister of correctional services.
Waluś has served 28 years for the murder of Hani. He held dual Polish-South African citizenship from 1986 until his South African citizenship was revoked in 2017.
The Constitutional Court ordered Waluś’ release on parole last week.
According to TimesLIVE, Home Affairs Minister Aaron Motsoaledi reportedly said that Waluś must serve his parole in South Africa.
“The letter addressed to Waluś and a certificate of exemption have been forwarded to the minister of justice and correctional services to be delivered to Waluś.
“Waluś must serve his parole in SA as part of his sentence,” Motsoaledi said.
eNCA reported that Waluś was prohibited from using any travel document or passport issued by native country, Poland.
