Selebi back in hospital after complications

2012-03-06 15:56
Cape Town - Former police commissioner Jackie Selebi is back in hospital after suffering dialysis complications, according to a report on Tuesday.

The Cape Argus reported Selebi had an abdominal infection caused by a blocked dialysis catheter.

Steve Biko Academic Hospital chief executive Ernest Kenoshi told the newspaper that out-of-hospital dialysis complications were quite common, with patients returning to hospital at least once a month.

Selebi had been back in hospital since February 25. He was discharged from the same hospital a week before that and transferred to Pretoria Central Prison.

He had been trained to administer his own treatment for diabetes and kidney disease.

Selebi collapsed at home in Waterkloof, Pretoria, in December 2011, and was admitted to hospital after losing his appeal against a corruption conviction in the Supreme Court of Appeal.

The appeal outcome meant he had to begin a 15-year jail sentence for corruption.
