ANC to blame for Hani’s killer getting parole – Numsa

Blame for the release of Chris Hani’s killer has been squarely placed at the doors of the ANC-led government.

Metalworkers’ union Numsa says many feel betrayed by the Constitutional Court’s decision but they must not allow themselves to be misled by who is in fact responsible for this. It points that for the past 28 years the ANC has refused to transform the judiciary and the economy for the benefit of the majority working class.

It adds that South Africa continues to have a bourgeois constitution while the ANC government does everything in their power to entrench the power of a handful of unelected privileged few at the expense of everyone else.

Numsa also took aim at the ANC’s alliance partners, the Communist Party (SACP) and labour federation Cosatu for protesting at the Constitutional Court. It says the two are hypocritical.

Numsa believes the protest action was an opportunistic tactic to trick the working class so that they transfer their anger to the courts, and not to the governing party ANC.

The apex court ordered that the apartheid-era killer Januz Walus be released on parole after it found that Justice and Correctional Services Minister Ronald Lamola’s 2020 decision to deny him parole was irrational. The minister has been given ten days within which to release Walus.

The Polish born Walus assassinated the influential SACP and anti-apartheid leader in 1993. The murder nearly plunged South Africa into civil war.
