Former Police Commissioner Jackie Selebi has DIED. He was admitted to hospital earlier this week. The 64 year-old was convicted of corruption, fraud and racketeering in August 2010 and sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Just 229 days into his sentence, in 2012, he was released on medical parole. He was receiving daily dialysis for kidney disease. He was also suffering from diabetes.
ANC spokesman Zizi Kodwa confirmed his death saying the department of correctional services had notified the party.
Eyewitness News reported that Selebi’s friend, Schabir Shaik said he heard the news this morning.
“I believe he’s been in an induced coma for some time now for about two-and-a-half weeks. He finally passed on between late last night and early this morning I believe,” he was quoted as saying.
“He was a good man,” Shaik said.
“I have good memories when I worked with him at [ANC headquarters] Shell House in the early 90s. I recall him to be a good comrade.”
