“Janusz Walus has not repented and does not deserve to be integrated back into society,” Mdakane said.

Ahead of the release of Janusz Walus from prison on Friday, the Young Communist League (YCL) in Gauteng is preparing to march to the Kgosi Mampuru correctional centre in Pretoria.

In a statement, the YCL said everyone wanting to take part in the march, will all have to gather at Princess Park at the corner of Nana Sita Street.

Friday’s march will be preceded by a Bua Thursday session, where questions such as why he killed former SACP general secretary, Chris Hani, and why he did not disclose all information during the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC).

“We are deeply revolted by the decision of the Gauteng High Court in granting parole to the murderer of the late Chris Hani.

“Janusz Walus has not repented and does not deserve to be integrated back into society,” the league’s Alex Mdakane said.

The Bua Thursday session which will be addressed by SACP deputy general secretary, Solly Mapaila, will be followed by a night vigil at 8pm at the Ousraadsaal Church Square.
