Walus shot Chris Hani.


"Our country is a constitutional democracy which is governed by the rule of law. Therefore, in reaching my decision, I have taken into account the relevant laws and prescripts that regulate our parole process, in particular, the provisions of the Correctional Services Act 111 of 1998."


The minister confirmed that the decision had already been communicated to Walus.

Walus was sentenced to death for the murder of Hani in the driveway of his Boksburg, Gauteng, home on April 10, 1993. His sentence was commuted to life after the abolition of the death penalty.

He then brought an application to be placed on parole on April 10, 2015 after serving 21 years and six months of the sentence.
