Pair Resentenced to Life for ANC Slaying

November 15, 2000|From Times Wire Reports

A South African court sent two men convicted of killing a popular African National Congress leader in 1993 to prison for life. Janusz Walus and Clive Derby-Lewis had originally been sentenced to death for Chris Hani's slaying. Hani, who led the ANC's military wing and the Communist Party, was gunned down outside his Johannesburg home. After the death penalty was ruled unconstitutional, Walus and Derby-Lewis sought a new sentence. Both men would become eligible for parole in 2013, according to the South African Press Assn.
