Jackie Selebi has passed on! It is reported that the former police commissioner died in a Pretoria hospital this morning, and of course the nation has taken to social media to share their shock and condolences.
After he was found guilty of corruption in 2010, he started serving his sentence in 2011. It was reported that he was sick in jail and soon after that he applied for medical parole after he had problems with his kidney. The ANC has confirmed his passing.
Condolences to his family and friends . . . it’s never easy losing a loved one!
Celebville took to twitter to share their comments about the tragedy. Here are some:
