Jackie Selebi on dialysis - report

2011-12-07 09:10
Johannesburg - Former police chief Jackie Selebi is responding well to treatment in a Pretoria prison hospital, a correctional services official has confirmed.

His condition is being closely monitored at the prison's clinic, correctional services spokesperson Zacharia Modise said.

It remains unclear how long he will remain in the clinic and if he will be moved to another healthcare facility for treatment.

Eyewitness News reported on Wednesday that it understands Selebi is currently undergoing dialysis treatment and may be in need of a new kidney.

Modise would not confirm what Selebi is being treated for, but said a state doctor and a private doctor are treating him.

Selebi collapsed at home on Friday after hearing that his appeal against his 15-year jail sentence had been dismissed.
