Selebi back in hospital

2012-08-02 14:55

Johannesburg - Former police commissioner Jackie Selebi has been readmitted to hospital, the department of correctional services said on Thursday.

Deputy chief commissioner James Smalberger said Selebi was admitted on Tuesday and had been in hospital ever since.

He said he could not comment on which hospital Selebi had been admitted to, or comment on his condition.

On Monday, Steve Biko Academic Hospital CEO Ernest Kenoshi said Selebi was no longer a patient there and asked last week to be transferred to Jakaranda Hospital in Pretoria.

Jakaranda Hospital spokesperson Adri Opperman declined to comment. She said the hospital had a policy of not commenting about their patients.

Selebi was granted medical parole two weeks ago and was placed under house arrest. He was convicted of corruption in 2010 and sentenced to 15 years in prison.

    Positive side to this story is that the guy is now just a rat, hiding and running, should have known that as the head of the police force and Interpol taking bribes was just not right....

      Makes you think how well run is Interpol, I mean, he did not become corrupt only after becoming head of Interpol.

    Had to keep up the show, perhaps he went back for energy injections for tomorrows golf day. Tough being medically unfit.

    Poor man. Wish you recovery on your health.

      rbphiri - 2012-08-02 15:46

      With that comment you should also be admitted to hospital along side Jackass Selebi, clearly you exhibiting signs of mental illness.

      @RPhiri and kenny, Can't I feel pity for this sick man? Does my pity mean I support his actions? No one including criminals deserve to be sick hence even criminals have a constitutional right to health.

    Wie betaal?

      eil33nn - 2012-08-02 15:37

      The million dollar question...And why is he not in a state hospital...

      rbphiri - 2012-08-02 15:48

      Well ofcourse us, governments' little piggy bank. Surely his pension is being reserved for new golf clubs.

      firstseed.mbeva.9 - 2012-08-02 15:58

      The same government that is paying for Malema's London trip

  • firstseed.mbeva.9 - 2012-08-02 15:21

    It sounds real.At least he is not playing golf

      tebo.go.5 - 2012-08-02 15:24

      yes im with you, but what about all the other sick normal citizens in prison?

  • john.ferreira.1213 - 2012-08-02 15:21

    Is there a problem with the correctional service hospital? He can also get his dialisis treatment there, so why give him medical parole and not Clive Derby Lewis. It goes to show if one has something on Zuma like Shabir Shaik has, then doors will open.

  • sandra.matlala.9 - 2012-08-02 15:24

    OH WOW SO he's actually sick* atleast his not lying about his health

  • francie.potgieter - 2012-08-02 15:36

    I nearly thought it was a article saying, he has passed away. Damn it is not. He was out of hospital for a week what happened to is busy dying he need dialysis 3 times a day, but miraculously you get parole and you can go a week without it. Wonder who are they trying to fool not us the public we are older that 2 that believes everything.

  • bzondikoata - 2012-08-02 15:41

    Really now!!!!

  • White.Tiger.Diamond.Paw - 2012-08-02 15:46

    It feels like an effort to pull the wool over everyones eyes to make us believe the man was genuinely sick, I forsee a very speedy recovery going forward.

    Karma is a bitch .

  • maseratifittipaldi - 2012-08-02 16:28

    Connectional Services will ensure it is a nice comfortable, expensive, PRIVATE hospital.

  • winifred.watson.9 - 2012-08-02 16:28

    who cares, he should receive the same treatment that 67 year old lady received at addington hospital. When her family arrived, they found her in a body bag stashed away somewhere out of sight at the hospital.This is what he deserves

  • Anthea - 2012-08-02 16:33

    tsk tsk. The old fake-a-litis flaring up again.

  • Pieter Baartman - 2012-08-02 16:47

    I still say there is nothing wrong with him.

      firstseed.mbeva.9 - 2012-08-02 17:11

      It is possible.Maybe he cannot afford the medical bills at home

  • Harold Chisimba - 2012-08-02 17:12

    In actual sense he didn't shed the blood of anyone.They are some who are more corruptible than him,But they are scotfree and still working in gorvenment.So he deserves parole and 4gvnes.

  • sean.redmond3 - 2012-08-02 17:42

    So? why tell us. You know nothing, why is nothing news?????????
