'Critically ill' Selebi to stay in medical wing
Johannesburg - Convicted former police chief Jackie Selebi is in a critical but stable condition and would have to stay in the medical wing of prison indefinitely, officials said on Wednesday.
"His condition is critical but stable at this moment," his doctor Heleen Bierman told reporters in Pretoria.
She said he suffered from "end stage kidney disease".
"It's reached the stage now where renal replacement therapy has become imperative," said Bierman.
Doctors had recommended that he stay in the medical wing of prison once discharged from hospital.
