Kenny Motsamai released on day parole
A member of Apla, Motsamai was convicted of killing a white traffic officer in Rustenburg, in 1989.
JOHANNESBURG - Member of the Azanian People's Liberation Army (Apla), Kenny Motsamai, has been released on day parole from Boksburg Prison.
In January, his release process was stalled because he refused to sign parole papers stating that that attached conditions were unconstitutional.
Motsamai was convicted in 1989 for killing a white traffic officer in Rustenburg, and has been in jail for 27 years insisting the crime was politically motivated.
Under the parole conditions, he'll be released at 8am, and will have to go back to jail at 4pm every day.
The Pan Africanist Congress (PAC) says it will challenge these conditions in court.
PAC General Secretary Narius Moloto says, "The authorities have already finished him (sic) so we have to allow him to come out on parole so we can begin to redirect his life and assist the party where necessary."
