Clive Derby-Lewis the man who killed Chris Hani is too ill to return to prison.

This follows an operation he had on Tuesday to remove dead tissue from his right leg which is said to be gangrene.

There is a possibility that doctors may still amputate his limb to stop the infection from spreading.

Marius Coertze said Derby-Lewis, 74, was on a second course of antibiotics. Derby-Lewis's blood pressure had stabilised, but was likely to return to life threatening levels if he was transferred from the private hospital, where he is being treated, to prison”.

Marius Coertze again accused prison authorities of deliberately neglecting Derby-Lewis's health problems.

Derby-Lewis is serving a life term for the murder of SA Communist Party general secretary Hani on April 10 1993.
