Convicted killer Clive Derby-Lewis will apply for medical parole because he is ill, his wife Gaye Derby-Lewis told Eyewitness News on Monday.

She planned to file the papers in the next few weeks and hoped the attempt would succeed as her husband was suffering from cancer and from gangrene in one leg.

This was the first time Derby-Lewis would apply for medical parole. He was denied normal parole last year.

"The MP of the apartheid-era Conservative Party, Derby-Lewis was sentenced to 25 years in prison for his part in the murder of SA Communist Party general secretary Chris Hani in 1993.

He arranged a firearm for triggerman Janusz Walus, who is serving the same prison term.

Both were initially sentenced to death. This was commuted to life in prison after the abolition of the death penalty.

Derby-Lewis is 76-years-old. - Sapa
