Selebi out of hospital, back in prison
Cape Town - Former police commissioner Jackie Selebi was discharged from hospital this week and transferred to the Pretoria Central Prison, according to a report on Saturday.
The Weekend Argus newspaper reported that Selebi was moved from the nephrology unit at Steve Biko Academic Hospital to a cell within the prison's hospital unit.
Selebi collapsed at home in Waterkloof, Pretoria, in December and was admitted to hospital after losing his appeal against a corruption conviction in the Supreme Court of Appeal last year.
The appeal outcome meant he had to begin a 15-year jail sentence for corruption.
The deputy commissioner of correctional services, Zachary Modise, said Selebi would be monitored closely by two trained nurses.
Selebi had also been trained to administer his own treatment. He suffered from diabetes and kidney disease.
