Veteran Mzansi actress Rami Chuene has joined scores of people who have slammed Police Minister Bheki Cele for not doing enough to address the scourge of human trafficking and gender-based violnce in the country.
Cele's name has been trending on Twitter since Tuesday, 22 September. The minister sent tweeps into a frenzy when he reportedly denied that Mzansi has a human trafficking problem. He also claimed human trafficking was a "publicity stunt".
The Isono actress expressed that Cele is "drowning" as a police minister and he has lost touch with the protection of the country and its citizens. Rami wrote on Twitter:
"Ndosi should have gracefully declined to return as police minister. He’s drowning. The lack of action on #GBV issues, human trafficking, etc. portray him as one who’s lost touch with the protection of the country and its citizens."
When Cele briefed the media about kidnapping and human trafficking, he warned about misinformation.
"There is a lot of fake news because it is known people are scared and sensitive about the matter."
He also addressed the media on Wednesday after a group of Mzansi protesters marched against foreign nationals in the country. The group accused foreigners of being behind the rising number of human trafficking cases in Mzansi.
Check out some of the comments from tweeps who have lambasted Cele for his latest comments:
"I'm still asking myself wat happened because first time he was so active and everywhere. But I think he's been controlled by some forces. He might be getting paid twice. It's impossible for a normal human being in his position to stay mum when the situation is escalating like this."
"I've always known that we were in the dog, I just didn't realise how bad it was until our Minister of Police Bheki Cele said this morning that human trafficking is a public stunt."
"The whole Police Minister Bheki Cele saying we don’t have a human trafficking problem here in South Africa. We are not taken serious in this country. The earlier we understand that we are not led in this country the better because we are being towed."
"Bheki Cele said human trafficking might be for publicity. We not safe y’all. A whole Minister of the Police???"
