Limpho Hani: Janusz Walus only writes to me to appear remorseful

Hani says the only interest she has in Walus is information on who ordered the hit on her husband and why.

JOHANNESBURG - Chris Hani's widow, Limpho, says her husband's killer must stop writing her letters because she has no intention of ever meeting him.

Hani joined the African National Congress (ANC) in Ekurhuleni in handing over a memorandum to the Constitutional Court today, calling for an urgent review of the case.

Last week, the High Court in Pretoria ruled that Janusz Walus must be released by the end of this month having served almost 23 years behind bars.

Hani says she doesn't owe anyone her forgiveness, because she's still not heard the truth about her husband's murder.

She says he's only writing her letters to appear remorseful, without admitting the truth.

"I'm not his girlfriend; he must stop writing me love letters. I will not tick any boxes for him. He has to tell this country, including my family, the truth."

Hani says the only interest she has in Walus is information about who ordered the hit on her husband and why.

"There must have been a meeting somewhere, where decisions were made [and] he was given a gun."

The ANC in Ekurhuleni says the decision to release Walus is insensitive and insulting.


Yesterday, The Sunday Times reported that Lindiwe Hani, [Chris] Hani's daughter, asked for a victim-offender dialogue with Walus just a day after a judge ordered his release on parole.

The Khulumani Support Group, which supports apartheid victims, said she deserved to know exactly who ordered her father's murder.

The Hani family and the South African Communist Party (SACP) have maintained that he shouldn't be released from prison, with some South Africans and political leaders in the ANC calling for him to be deported.

Doctor Marjorie Dobson, who is the national director of the support group, highlighted the question being asked by Hani's widow and the ANC at today's demonstration.

" Who ordered the killing of Chris Hani? That is the primary question for the family."
