In South Africa
The far-right gunman who killed South Africa’s anti-apartheid hero Chris Hani has been stabbed in prison,
The stabbing of Janusz Walus comes days before he was due to be released on parole after nearly 30 years in jail.
According to officials, he was allegedly stabbed by another prisoner and is in a stable condition.
Report has it that , Walus, 69, shot Mr Hani in 1993 in a failed attempt to derail South Africa’s transition from white-minority rule to democratic rule.
Mr Hani was regarded as the most popular politician after anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela.
South Africa’s government and Mr Hani’s widow Limpho vigorously opposed Walus’s attempts to gain his freedom.
But in a ruling on 21 November, South Africa’s highest court ordered his release within 10 days, saying the justice minister’s refusal to grant him parole was irrational.
