- Police Minister Bheki Cele has angered South Africans once again
- Following his controversial plea for the ban on liquor to be extended, Cele has now called on South Africans not to kiss
- Cele urged citizens to practice social distancing even with their own partners at home
Police Minister Bheki Cele is slowly becoming public enemy number one for many South Africans.
Briefly.co.za previously reported on the public outcry following Cele's request for the ban on alcohol to be extended indefinitely.
Cele's sentiments were enough to make many citizens see red, but the minister's latest statement may just push some over the edge.
ENCA News reported that Cele has called on South Africans to take social distancing one step further - into their homes and apply it with their partners.
Cele pleaded with the public to maintain the required distance and to avoid kissing - even at night.
Cele said, "Maintain the distance even in the middle of the night. Maintain this social distance."
The minister added, "Don't come close more than a metre, doesn't matter who. No kissing, nothing."
Briefly.co.za earlier reported on a couple who has been faced with more than just kissing problems.
The couple's six-day honeymoon in the Maldives has now turned into an extended lockdown stay.
Although the lockdown saw them extending their romantic stay, the R14 000 a night resort started eating into their savings.
