Shooting from the hip

2012-06-13 12:13

Take a look at some of Bheki Cele’s most quotable quotes from his news conference at the National Press Club.

- "I need no golden hand-shake. I. Need. No. Golden. Handshake!"

-   “I know I will miss the police. I know the police will miss this maverick.”

-  “If I die and someone put me in another party, I will rise and say, 'Put me back in the ANC'.”

- “I have nothing to say to Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa. Nothing. I have not spoken to him since my suspension.”

-  "I will not engage in any pointless back chattings, I will simply shut up and go home."

-  "The CEO of SAA doesn't need to know how to fly a plane"

-  “I am not a civilian. I'm a trained soldier.”

-  “I did not refuse any golden handshake. It was not offered.”

-  “If I had one more day to live, I would live it with the police. Our paths will cross again.”

-  “I love politics and politics loves me.”

-  “There is one organisation I would like to join: Gun-Free SA. A gun-free society will save a lot of lives.”

-  “Do I shed tears? Yes I have shed a tear. [But] tigers don’t cry.”

-  "I'm not dying for this job anymore."

-  "She [newly appointed police commissioner Mangwashi Victoria "Riah" Phiyega] did not steal my job, she answered the same call I did two years ago."

-  "I humbly request that you give me time to rebuild my life in my native KZN."

-  "Which cookie jar was I caught dipping my hands into Mr Zwelinzima Vavi?"
