Why this story matters:
“Janusz Waluś is a racist murderer who has recently become a popular figure among the extreme nationalist and racist groups,” claims Professor Rafał Pankowski from the “Never Again” association.
Waluś is a Polish citizen who immigrated to South Africa in the 1980s. There, he joined racist organizations defending apartheid, such as the Afrikaner Resistance Movement. He also collaborated with the extreme faction of the conservative party. In 1993, he murdered Chris Hani, a black leader of anti-apartheid movement in South Africa, a close associate of Nelson Mandela. Waluś is still serving his sentence.
“Whoever celebrates Waluś, celebrates his crime. Thus ONR glorifies murder on the grounds of race. Especially as Waluś did nothing else in his life to gain recognition,” Professor Pankowski told Jakub Janiszewski from TOK FM.
Needless to say that Waluś never showed remorse for his deed.
Here he is -- a murderer, a neo-fascist, a racist, and an idol of the radicalized Polish youth.
Details from the story:
- The National Radical Camp (ONR) organizes a tournament of indoor soccer to commemorate Janusz Waluś.
- The only thing that Waluś is notorious for is the murder of Chris Hani, a close associate of Nelson Mandela.
