Some wah's will attenuate radio signals at the top of their range, you might have to use a ferrite coil near the circuit board. Also if your connecting cables are not up to par ground wise that could cause a problem. Check you cables, try using a different set of cables. If you have a polarity switch on your amp, switch it to the other position and see it that helps. If you are powering the wah with a power supply, disconnect the supply and try the wah on battery only, if this helps, check the ground side of you power supply and check the ground in the wall plug to see if it is truly grounded to the house system. Anyone of these of a combination of these can cause that RFI interference.

The brand of the cables is not really a consideration Andrew. Something has happened to cause that NEW problem, unless a component on the PC board in the wah has failed, or a wire has come off inside or there is a potential non contact on one of the in or out jacks on the wah itself. Take a pencil eraser and wipe the jacks on the cable and take a look at the spring prong on the female jack on the wah and burnish those just to make sure you are getting good contact with the cables.
