Initially sentenced to death for Hani's murder, Waluś's sentence was commuted to life imprisonment, and he was held at C-Max in Pretoria. Waluś was refused parole four times, before the Constitutional Court ordered his release on parole in November 2022. His parole was delayed for nearly a week after he was attacked in prison, and he was released on 7 December 2022.


On 16 March 2020, Waluś was again denied parole by Justice Minister Ronald Lamola. Waluś appealed the decision to the Constitutional Court in Johannesburg. In his filing, he claimed remorse for Hani's murder and recognized apartheid had failed. Hani's widow Limpho continued to oppose his release, believing his admission of remorse to be insincere, and pointing out that other convicted assassins (such as James Earl Ray, the accused murderer of Martin Luther King Jr.) spent the rest of their lives in prison. In November 2022, the Constitutional Court ruled in favour of Waluś's appeal against these decisions and ordered that he be released on parole. Limpho Hani condemned the court's decision as "diabolical". Initially scheduled for release on 1 December, he was stabbed and wounded in jail on 29 November, and his parole delayed while he recovered. On 7 December 2022, Waluś was discharged from the hospital and officially released on parole under "strict conditions". His parole period will last for two years, during which time he is barred from leaving South Africa.


Waluś has been used as a symbol by the far right in Poland due to his opposition to communism in South Africa. Football fans displayed banners and scarves with Waluś's name and photo, amid calls for his release from prison. In 2018, a Polish journalist who spoke to Walus reported that "in 1993, there was a war in South Africa and he felt like a soldier... He still believes in the system of racial segregation and that whites and blacks should live apart."


In May 2017, Justice Minister Michael Masutha introduced an application to the Supreme Court of Appeal in Bloemfontein to overturn Waluś's parole. Meeting on 29 May, the court reserved judgment in the case, citing a procedural irregularity involving the Hani family's victim impact statement. During the hearing, Waluś's advocate, Roelof du Plessis, stated that his client's South African citizenship had been revoked by the Department of Home Affairs "just a few weeks" earlier, and that a warrant for his deportation had been issued. On 18 August 2017, the Supreme Court of Appeal overturned Waluś's parole, a decision that was welcomed by the SACP.


Janusz Waluś and Clive Derby-Lewis were sentenced to death for their actions, but after the abolition of the death penalty in South Africa their sentence was commuted to life imprisonment. With the introduction of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission after apartheid, Waluś applied for amnesty, which would give him parole. After extensive investigation the commission found that he and Derby-Lewis were not acting on higher orders and refused amnesty; he remained in prison. Clive Derby-Lewis was released from prison on medical parole in June 2015 after serving 22 years; he died on November 3, 2016, from lung cancer.

On 10 March 2016, the High Court in Pretoria ruled that Waluś should be released on parole. The Department of Home Affairs indicated in September 2016 that Waluś would be stripped of his South African citizenship and deported back to Poland if he was released on parole.


The assassination of Chris Hani took place on Easter Saturday, 10 April 1993, a time when negotiations to end apartheid were taking place. Waluś drove to Chris Hani's house in Boksburg, Johannesburg, around 10:20 am. Hani had just returned home and, as he got out of his car, Waluś called out his name, at which Hani turned around and was shot once in the body and then three times in the head. Hani died on the scene, while Waluś fled. A neighbour noted the registration of the car fleeing the scene, which resulted in Waluś's capture.


Janusz Waluś was born in Zakopane in Communist-ruled Poland and, in 1981, emigrated to South Africa to join his father and brother, who had arrived in South Africa in the 1970s and established a small glass factory. After the family business went bankrupt some years later, Waluś, then a truck driver, joined both the National Party and the Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging, becoming more and more involved in the far-right politics supporting South Africa's apartheid regime.
