Bheki Cele inspects Durban beachfront

2010-12-30 12:15
Durban - National police commissioner General Bheki Cele started a walk-about on Durban's beachfront on Thursday morning.

Accompanied by a large police entourage, he spoke to street vendors who voiced their concerns about the area.

Cele was inspecting the security arrangements for the New Year celebrations on Friday.

Tourist Walter Dube from Tembisa, east of Johannesburg, told Cele he was very impressed with the security on the beachfront.

"I arrived in Durban last week. I was in a hotel with friends at South Beach.

"I lost my laptop and called the police. Within minutes police were on the scene," said Dube.

He told Cele he felt so safe that he could even walk at night and talk on his cellphone.

It was wonderful to see so many police patrolling the beach, he said.
