'No one will work like Cele'

2011-10-25 18:00

I am not against the president for suspending police commissioner General Bheki Cele. Other people will say he did the right thing but even if they look for another person he/she will never work the way this man worked.

Some people - when they occupy higher position even though there is a uniform - want to look the same as the people under them but what I liked about Mr Cele is always wore his uniforms and walked with his colleagues to the crime scene and spoke to people. But others send someone to represent them.

This is one man that I respected. When it comes to criminals he did not take any nonsense.

But still some at the Cabinet know they are working with criminals and they are criminals themselves and they are happy about the suspension.

No one is perfect we all make mistakes. He signed those documents thinking that it is for the benefit of the country.

What is the president going to do with the ones that are still pestering him? He is not doing anything about it, especially the youth league.

He must also make an example of them so that people may see that you don't just run around and think you can make people believe what you are doing is going to bring results. Even the Bible says you reap what you planted.

Work cannot come from a tree you sacrifice for it. Having a degree or a diploma does not mean you will find a job; there are many things we can do ourselves and even create jobs for other people. When the government sees this effort it will be forced to do something because they will people are not relying on the government only they can do something for themselves.

Blaming others will never bring solutions to these problems people are facing. Let the people wake up and stop thinking that their vote will make them get the job they want.

Corruption will never stop unless we stop it ourselves by creating our own jobs and forget about the government.

Stop being lazy and start doing something about your lives and stop blaming other people for not creating jobs for you. You are responsible for yourself the president is put there just for the country to be in control.  He can never change anything if we ourselves does not help him. Also blaming him will never bring any change our lives.

We have to stand up on our own and don't expect that i voted then i must a job, can you believe that the job will just come to you lazing around.

Also stop blaming the foreigners because those are coming from countries that suffered more than the way you did

That is why they work hard for small wages and salaries and when the rewards come their way we say they are taking our job. Let's work hard and reap what sowed/planted.

    If you protecting the law, you need to live with in it.

    I remember when that guy in KZN filmed a blue light convoy doing 170km/h an hour, terrorizing people on the road. Upon this video coming to light, Cele's response as head cheese of transport in KZN was to promise to leave no stone unturned to find this villain doing the filming... But I guess I do appreciate him going to back to Apartheid style ranks for his officers....at least an attemp to go the right direction considering that Apartheid police was actually effective in contrast to the Streetwise 2 & bribery brigade in charge now.

    I am sorry to see him go. He was against crime and was making difference with his zero tolerance attitude. He was against the criminals and for the people. Thanks for the article Padido.

      Maarten - 2011-10-25 20:36

      I agree with Jenniy. Hope he gets a second chance from the report.

      Myth - 2011-10-26 08:07

      Unfortunately, he excluded himself from the zero tolerance zone.

  • Nic - 2011-10-25 20:01

    He signed those documents thinking that it is for the benefit of the country.Do you honestly believe that Padido? if it was for our benefit, why did he skip the tender process? why did he involve himself personally with the landlord? he was out for a kick back nothing more nothing less.Ego's and power corrupt

  • Julie - 2011-10-25 20:03

    I think he will be back again

  • Garthn - 2011-10-25 20:15

    You're missing a comma after work

  • Boeretroos - 2011-10-25 20:57

    Yes Padido you are correct, nobody will work like him because others will see the errors of his ways and work differently. Anyway why should anyone want to work like he did? Wat n klomp twak man ! Get a white man for the job please.

      Jacques - 2011-10-26 11:10

      @boeretroos please keep quiet, there is no need for a comment like that.. if cele are to be replaced may i for one hopes it is someone like our public defender.

    Cele wants to come over as a big swash buckling cowboy that fears no man. If there are accolades to be dished out he pushes himself to the fore. He has done good work, no doubt but it is trumpeted to the world like a little boy that just learnt to ride a bicycle. If he had a zero tolerance for the rampant crime factor in the police forcethen my opinion would be more friendly. He is powerless in that sphere.

    If you respect this criminal I would not like to know who you disrespect. (Uniform or not) Wake up and smell the roses! The only sense you write is "Stop being lazy and start doing something about your lives and stop blaming other people for not creating jobs for you."

  • Myth - 2011-10-26 07:58

    No one has to accept 2nd best, especially when you are probably one of the few paying for it. The sheer scale of the amounts involved drew attention to this rent issue; were there other lesser deeds which slipped in under the radar? As for the criminals in parliament, that's a bit vague and needs firming up; perhaps starting with the wealthiest in the pack which clarifies the demise of the Scorpions.

  • MoAfrika - 2011-10-26 08:10

    Drivel, Your article is all over the place.

  • Tisetso2 - 2011-10-26 08:47

    ''He signed those documents thinking that it is for the benefit of the country''. I am sorry Diddo but he took the job knowing very well the job would bring huge responsibility. with that responsibility comes accountability. The buck stopped at him. While I can understand your admiration for the man, I think just this once Zuma can be given thumbs up for what he has done.

  • Mpho - 2011-10-26 08:51

    He wasn't effective or hardworking! It's called Public Relations alias Smokes and Mirrors or trying to be seen to be working!

  • Rob - 2011-10-26 09:10

    "When it comes to criminals he did not take any nonsense" - Are you serious? The guy is as corrupt as the external hard drive I threw away but you're okay with that because he always wears his uniform and talks to people. WTF!!?!?! Of course you can blame the governement for not creating jobs, they went around convincing people that if they voted for the ANC, jobns would be created when any logical thinking person knows that the government cannot give anything to anyone that it hasn't already taken from someone else. You say don't blame government then you pull the old switcheroo and say don't blame foreigners because they have suffered more but you fail to recognise that they have suffered at the hand of their own government. I could pick your article apart even more but it is quite clear you have a lot more to think about in terms of reality. Wake up Padido, wake up.

  • Linds - 2011-10-26 11:18

    Many people forget a simple thing - Malema does not occupy any office in government. Zuma cannot really descipline him because he is not in government. Only the ANC can descipline him, but he enjoys the support of several heavyweights within the party. Zuma's hands are tied.

  • Jackie - 2011-10-26 17:54

    cele's PR has got you fooled you fool.

  • Clement - 2011-10-28 07:39

    that was a good step taken against him but he made a huge difference dealing with criminals. i would like him to be given a second chance too
