Selebi out and about
Monday 7 October 2013 - 8:44am
Former national police commissioner Jackie Selebi, who was released on medical parole last year, has been seen out and about in Pretoria.
According to the Beeld Newspaper, Selebi was photographed shopping at Monument Park and was seen being driven in a BMW 6-series.
In 2010, he was convicted and sentenced to 15 years behind bars for corruption. The former top cop received bribes from drug dealer Glenn Agliotti.
And last year the medical parole board said he was suffering from irreversible kidney failure and heart and eye disease.
The 63-year-old told the paper “he hopes his condition would improve further and that his illness kept him at home and prevented him from driving.”
Selebi, who “walked with help but seemed in good health,” apparently chatted with a few shoppers and bought Sunday papers.
In 2011, Selebi collapsed at his Waterkloof home after his final appeal was dismissed in the Supreme Court of Appeal.
Meanwhile, Selebi's spokeperson Wynanda Coetzee says she can't comment on Selebi's health as she has not seen him in two months.
