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.

    The Mad Hatter takes a holiday in Durbs and Unlucky Dube loses his laptop - but no worries because the cops were there quickly. But this is all good because, as we know, no news is good news and this article is no news!

    We will feel much safer, now that "his lowness" has walked amonong the masses, with his hordes of bodyguards... checking if this is a "laptop-safe" environment...

    Good for Cele. Maybe he should walk around without his body guards, to see how we the masses have to cope. If something happens to him - tough as then he will know what the reallity is.

      Pie - I have tried for 5 years to sort out crime in my area. I have been called a racist, threatened, victimised - by the same police that Cele brags about. I have every right to be negative, so please dont be so arrogant. Leave the arrogance to the racist ANC regime.
