The Department of Correctional Services (DCS) has confirmed that the murderer of struggle stalwart Chris Hani, Janusz Waluś, has been stabbed at the Kgosi Mampuru II Correctional Centre in Pretoria.

Waluś murdered Hani in 1993 in an apparent assassination hit of the anti-apartheid political activist.

“A detailed incident report is to be provided at a later stage, but what can be stated at this point is that inmate Waluś is stable and DCS healthcare officials are providing the necessary care. It is alleged that Waluś was stabbed by another inmate from the same housing unit.

“Stabbing and other forms of disturbances are offences not warranted in a correctional environment and this case will be investigated,” the department said.

The Constitutional Court recently ordered the release of Waluś on parole after he was denied parole twice by Justice and Constitutional Development Minister Ronald Lamola and former minister Michael Masutha.

He is expected to be released this week.

Meanwhile, the Chris Hani Memorial site at the Thomas Titus Nkobi Memorial Park in Boksburg has been vandalised.

Metro spokesperson Zweli Dlamini confirmed to Boksburg Advertiser that the municipality is assessing the facility to determine the amount of damage, and the matter has been reported to the Ekurhuleni Metro Police Department for investigation.
