It has been reported that former health minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang is seriously ill and may have to undergo another liver transplant.

She underwent her first transplant just two-and-a-half years ago.

69 year old Tshabalala-Msimang was admitted two weeks ago to the private Folateng-wing at the Charlotte Maxeke hospital in Johannesburg and had to undergo several tests this past week.

Prof Jeff Wing, Tshabalala-Msimang's specialist, has confirmed that the former minister is in hospital and that her condition is related to the first transplant.

He says her body may be rejecting the liver that she received in March 2007.

Tshabalala-Msimang was health minister from 1999 to September last year.
