‘No one has ever told Holocaust victims to move on or forgive’

Chris Hani's widow Limpho says it’s insensitive to say she should move on or forgive Janusz Waluś.

JOHANNESBURG - Chris Hani's widow Limpho says no one has ever told Holocaust victims to move on or forgive, and therefore it's insensitive to say she should move on or forgive Janusz Waluś.

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

Last week the High Court in Pretoria ruled that the 60-year-old be released by the end of this month, having served almost 23-years behind bars.

Hani's wife says she views the murder of her husband in the same light as the Holocaust survivors, and no one has ever told the victims to forgive and move on.

"For a white judge in this country to say to me I should forget and move on, that is why I called her a racist."

She says she will not withdraw her comments against Judge Nicolene Janse Van Nieuwenhuizen, because the judge has no place to tell her family how to deal with their pain.

"She has no right. She has no standing."

In the memorandum handed over yesterday, the ANC in Ekurhuleni called for an apology from Janse Van Nieuwenhuizen, saying her judgment trivialised the family's suffering.

WATCH: Chris Hani's killer must rot in jail, says Fikile Mbalula
