Derby-Lewis stabbed again
Correctional Services says Chris Hani's killer was stabbed in his back with a piece of glass.
JOHANNESBURG - The Correctional Services Department has confirmed Chris Hani's killer Clive Derby-Lewis was stabbed in the Kgosi Maphoro Prison in Pretoria on Sunday.
The department says he was stabbed in his back with a piece of glass.
Earlier this month, his wife Gaye went to the High Court in Pretoria demanding that her husband be taken to a private hospital to be treated after being stabbed in late February.
The order was granted and served to the department which says the new injury will not interfere with his planned visit to the hospital this morning.
The department's Manelisi Wolela said, "We condemn these kinds of attacks on offenders because it's our mandate to ensure their safe custody. We'll take steps to ensure we eliminate this kind of a challenge."
