GUGULETHU - Calls for Police Minister Bheki Cele to be removed from his position are growing, with political parties also joining the bandwagon. This follows the minister’s outburst at the director of the civil organisation group, Action Society.
Cele’s conduct at a community meeting went viral on social media, and now, South Africans are demanding that he be taken before Parliament’s Portfolio Committee on Police. Action Society’s Ian Cameron was forcefully removed from a community meeting after the minister yelled at him.
Freedom Front Plus leader Pieter Groenewald said the minister’s conduct must be addressed and should not be tolerated. Cameron said the organisation will not “shut up” while crime in the country is spiralling out of control.

He told IOL that the South African Police Service would never win the fight against crime if Cele remained in power. Cameron added that Action Society would continue to be the voice of the voiceless where the police neglect their duty.
South Africans respond to Police Minister Bheki Cele’s outburst at the community meeting:
“What did that guy do. He was just asking simple questions or comment. Some leaders they think are superior, but they are dummies.”

“Careful now. He was backed into a corner by Ian and got told to shut up and leave. He might just pull the same stunt. Arrogant human.”
