Hani’s widow Limpho Hani made this submission in her affidavit before the Constitutional Court, opposing the Walus’s bid to have the court look into his failed attempt to get parole in March last year.In a lengthy affidavit,Walus detailedhow, since his incarceration in October 1993, he was a reformed man who had tried numerous times to convey his apology to Hani’s widow and his children. headtopics.com

SA Communist Party spokesperson Alex Mashilo said the SACP and the Hani family had filed opposing papers against the convicted assassin’s application.“We can confirm that the matter will be heard in February 2022, in terms of the directives of the ConCourt,” Mashilo said.

In her affidavit, on behalf of herself and the SACP, Hani said the motive for her husband’s murder was not just personal but carefully designed to thrust SA into a political catastrophe.Hani said the high court in Pretoria correctly found last year that the decision of justice minister Ronald Lamola not to grant parole, was neither irrational nor unreasonable.

“The impugned decision did not constitute an error of law or evidence of executive bias,” Hani said.Dr Martin Luther King Jr’s assassinator, James Earl Ray, spent the rest of his life in prison until he died in 1998.Limpho HaniHani said the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) in 1999 had refused Walus’s application for amnesty. She said the TRC did so because Walus failed to make a full disclosure and much-needed closure for his victims, nor did he provide reconciliation and justice to South Africans.

Hani said Walus was found to be unremorseful and dishonest by the TRC.“It was a self-centred endeavour, directed only at escaping retribution for his crime,” she said.She added the crime committed by Walus was heinous, in that it not only took the life of a father and husband, but also a man who, along with his comrades in the struggle, was an architect of, and negotiator for, SA’s constitutional democracy. headtopics.com

“As such, the crime was one that shook a nation that was crafting a new society, to its core,” she said.Hani said Walus’s assassination of her husband was intended to be the first of many political assassinations.“His name was third on a list that contained 16 others, earmarked for death because they espoused a political belief different from the applicant’s.”

Hani said it was not uncommon for other democracies around the world to continue imprisoning convicted people who commit political assassinations that have the potential to destabilise democracy and societal peace.“For instance, in the US, Dr Martin Luther King Jr’s assassinator, James Earl Ray, spent the rest of his life in prison until he died in 1998.”

Blah blah blah. He has served more than his sentence. All the ANC terrorist bombers who killed and maimed innocent people are still roaming the streets free. This is political shit. Laws that apply to ordinary citizens must be applied to even politicians, the pain felt by the Hani family is felt by thousands of families in the country who lose their loved ones on the hands of criminals who get paroled and be brought back to live in the same communities.
