Selebi 'must stay alive to serve sentence'
Johannesburg - Former national police commissioner Jackie Selebi should be kept alive so he can serve his entire sentence, reported the Saturday Star.
"I hope they put him on a drip and keep him alive for every day of those 15 years so that he can serve his entire sentence," said security consultant Paul O'Sullivan.
"That man has got to go to prison for the 150 000 people who were murdered in the nine years when he was police chief, for the 500 000 women who were raped and for the two million people who were robbed."
Selebi was taken to hospital after he saw on television that his appeal against his corruption conviction had failed on Friday.
He has until Sunday evening to report to Johannesburg Prison to start his 15-year sentence. O'Sullivan said he hoped Selebi would be forced into a prison in a wheelbarrow if necessary.
"This is the man who said, 'I will jump off Sandton City if I'm convicted of corruption', who waved his hands at the media and said, 'who do you think I am so cheap to be bought for R50 000?'
"He's not going to deprive South Africans from seeing justice being done," said O'Sullivan.
Selebi was also ordered to repay the legal fees he incurred as he had asked the State to assist him in carrying the cost of his legal battle.
