Jackie Selebi photographed shopping in Pretoria

Former police chief and convicted criminal Jackie Selebi, who was released on medical parole in 2012 in a reportedly critically ill state, was photographed shopping in Pretoria.

He was chauffeured in his luxury BMW 6-series to a shopping centre in Monument Park to buy the Sunday papers.

Selebi spoke to a few shoppers before he bought his newspaper.

He walked without any assistance, and, according to Beeld, seemed to be in good health.

When reporters phoned him a few hours later to enquire about his health, he said he felt a little better and he hoped his condition would improve further.

Selebi said his illness kept him at home and prevented him from driving.

The medical parole board on July 20 2012 decided that Selebi could be released because he was suffering from irreversible kidney failure, high blood pressure and diabetes.

His sudden decline into ill health surprised independent doctors, who said that kidney failure was normally a disease with slow progression.

At the time of his release on medical parole, Correctional Services Minister Sibusiso Ndebele said Selebi was being sent home because his department had limited capacity to provide care for terminally ill patients.

Selebi was sentenced to 15 years' imprisonment on August 3, 2010 for taking bribes from convicted drug dealer Glenn Agliotti.

He collapsed at his house in December 2011 after his final appeal failed.

Hosh6 - "You can't compare him to rapists or murderers."

Selebi is a murderer, he helped drugs get into the country, and protected the drug dealers from criminal conviction.

Hosh6 - "He has a criminal record, isn't that punishment enough?"

Nope. Imagine if we take all rapists and murderers and merely give them criminal records instead of jail time.

Selebi was given medical parole, because he was terminally ill, but the motherf***er is seen walking around doing shopping...

If you are well enough to shop, you are well enough to sit your @ss in jail.

Hosh6 - "Wasn't he convicted of the things you crying about?"

Yeah, he was convicted, but then got medical parole. So, instead of serving time in jail, the dude is running outside free, because he managed to fake an illness.

"Mr Selebi was punished for the wrongs he did I don't know why you making noise."

What punishment dude? Did he serve jail time? Did he pay the money back?
Tell us dude, because we all want to know how selebi was supposedly punished.
