Bheki Cele Is Saying He Denies unfriendly relationship allegations

The police minister Bheki Cele has denied that he has a "frosty" relationship with the national police commissioner Khehla Sithole.

"I deny that there is a frosty relationship". Cele told the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) hearings into the July riots on Friday.

He said he and Sithole had a "working relationship".

"I was a national commissioner... I minimized any conflict. I had a wonderful team. The stats had never been so good". Cele said, of his tenure as national police commissioner, before he became the police minister.

Cele said the "real" frosty relationship was among SAPS top management.

"I would like to see the commissioner take his management and walk in unison. I hope this organization will find its way and do the job it is supposed to do and resolve matters that are supposed to be resolved. I hope we will find each other and fix those things". Cele said.

He said everyone should take responsibility for the people who died during the riots.

"It could have been better for all of us". He said.
