Speaking at struggle icon Chris Hani’s commemoration, where he condemned factionalism within the uMkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans Association, South African Communist Party General Secretary Blade Nzimande, called for the memory of Hani to be honoured by unity and non-factionalism. Nzimande also said the SACP remains strongly opposed to the release of convicted murderer Janusz Waluś and demanded that the truth behind Hani’s assassination be revealed.
