A far-right bomb planter who was jailed for life for his part in an explosion that killed four people in the 1990s fled to Namibia on the day he was released on parole. But City Press reports, Jan “Voetbol” van der Westhuizen, the mastermind behind the bombing on December 24 1996 in Worcester, Western Cape, was back behind bars within hours of being released from prison in Upington. Van der Westhuizen, a one-time Namibian rugby star, will immediately resume the rest of his sentence after his extradition while he is now also facing new charges of escaping and breaching his parole.
