Bheki Cele dances back

2010-01-10 13:00

AND now look who is dancing again. Yes, you guessed right, it’s our

national police commissioner, Bheki Cele, back in his hood in Durban for New

Year’s Eve and back to his favourite pastime: partying.

It seems Cele, popularly known as Ndosi (his clan name) on the

party scene, is back to his dancing ways again. And boy can he still


South Africa’s new police chief was spotted at a lavish New Year’s

Eve bash in KwaZulu-Natal doing what those on the party scene know him to do

best: dancing up a storm.

And City Press has this picture to prove it.

Cele was among several high-profile guests at the lavish do thrown

by multimillionaire and former police constable S’bu Mpisane and his wife, Shaun


Generations actors Winnie Ntshaba-Modise (Khethiwe) and Dumisani

Mbebe (who plays Khethiwe’s loverboy, Dumisani Shabane, in the soapie) and bling

queen Khanyi Mbau were some of the VIP guests at the party. Revellers say

expensive champagne and whisky flowed like the River Jordan, while Cele stole

the show with his amazing dancing shoes.

The scene resembled the venue of American music mogul Puff Daddy’s

popular yearly – and exclusive – all-white party.

All the guests looked angelic in all-white outfits while the

lighting that dotted around the venue made it look heavenly – albeit a bit on

the tacky side (all-white themes are so 2001).

Mpisane and his wife hosted the star-studded New Year’s Eve bash at

their La Lucia mansion outside eThekwini. The house is worth an estimated


President Jacob Zuma’s nephew, Khula Zuma, also attended.Winnie

Ntshaba-Modise brought along her hubby, Thabo, and co-star and on-screen beau

Mbebe (they were wearing matching takkies).

 They stuck together throughout like

three peas in a pod.

Despite the guests bringing in mud from the rainy weather outside

the gracious hosts welcomed them into their immaculate house, which was

decorated all-white, to party the night away well into the early hours of the


But its a good thing they were not relying on Cele to man the

security as, according to sources who were present at the party, he was a

popular dance floor regular.

Of course this does not come as a surprise – it is well known that

the man enjoys a good party.

And really, who cares if the host was once rumoured to have been

been the subject of a SARS
investigation in 2008 into how he had acquired all

that moolah on the modest salary of a policeman?

Clearly not any of the guests.
