Right-wing party behind S.A. killing

The ultra-right wing Conservative Party in South Africa has said the killers of the black activist Chris Hani acted on its behalf in 1993.

The party's leader, Ferdi Hartzenberg, was testifying at the Truth and Reconciliation Commission hearing into the two convicted killers of Mr Hani -- Clive Derby-Lewis and Janusz Walus.

They are serving life sentences and are seeking an amnesty under the terms of the Commission.

They argue that the killing of Mr Hani, who was leader of the South African Communist Party, was politically motivated.

Mr Hartzenberg described Mr Hani as the number one enemy of the Afrikaner.
