JOHANNESBURG - The leaders of the tripartite alliance have now signed and handed over a memorandum to the National Commissioner of Correctional Services calling for Chris Hani's killer to serve out his full jail sentence.

Demonstrators marched on the Kgosi Mampuru Prison where Janusz Waluś has been serving time for the 1993 murder of the South African Communist Party(SACP) leader during the country's constitutional negotiations.

The High Court in Pretoria granted him parole last month but the Justice Ministry announced this week it will appeal that decision.

Hundreds of protesters arrived at the prison dressed in ANC, SACP, Sanco and Cosatu T-shirts.

In a unified voice they've called for Waluś to 'rot' in jail for robbing South Africans of a noble leader.

SACP Secretary General Jacob Mamabolo read out the memorandum at the gates of the prison.

"We are calling on the correctional services centre and the department to continue to keep Janusz Waluś in detention."

The crowd then marched to Burgess Park and arrived singing songs remembering the slain SACP leader.

They've been told not to speak to the media as their leadership wants to communicate one single message that Waluz must rot in jail.
