Police Minister Bheki Cele makes a mysterious claim about her deal with public guardian Busisiwe Mkhwebane and Zamaswazi Majozi, owner of the Twitter trade Sphithiphithi Evaluator, one of the so-called instigators of violence in July bottom, He said Majoji took him to court because of her loss of income, and she also brought the matter to public guardians. 

Police Minister Bheki Cele distanced himself from the catastrophic failure of SAPS during the July turmoil on Friday.

Bheki Cele collaborated with state officials in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng on the lack of information gathered before and during the riot, and the complete inadequate response from police. Said that it is necessary to confirm.

He was under control because he could not contact Xitole. He said, "I don't remember seeing the Secretary of State during [the days of anxiety] I heard he said I was trying to find him in the wrong place ... he should have tried to be in the right place.

The right place is where things happened, where people died, where there was looting, "Sele told the South African Human Rights Commission, personally testifying as a witness to the organization's ongoing investigation into riots and looting. Did. Sele submitted a statement to SAHRC last week, but he didn't read it aloud on Friday and decided to speak voluntarily instead.

However, his testimony was used Tuesday by Commission evidence to ask Xitole about some of the allegations made by the Minister. When asked if Xitole said in his testimony that he could not be contacted during the riot, the Secretary of State replied that the minister "probably saw the wrong place."

This led to Ceres' reaction on Friday. Sele also moved Xitole from the state level to the national level because he was impressed by Andre Gaum, Kris Nissen and Philil Nuturi on the social cohesion program within the services of Xitole, especially working with young people. He said he brought him as a commissioner. "You can definitely ring the bell to a man ..." said the minister.

It was the discord within the SAPS criminal service that seemed to put pressure on the relationship, and according to Sele, left the minister without any kind of report or early warning of the riot.

This was a breach of legal obligation, and Sele said in a statement that SAPS was published as "insufficient" due to "lack of active intelligence and lack of advance warning of criminal investigations."

"Given the high-profile nature of the topics discussed, I received the first threat and risk assessment / early warning report before and after the riot through continuous feedback, updates, and briefings by the National Commission.

By providing the insights and understanding that I expected to serve my purpose, I can contribute to comprehensive strategies, guidelines, and resources, "Cele said.
