Cele going to court over report

2012-06-13 11:04

Pretoria – Bheki Cele said on Wednesday said he will go to court to challenge the findings of the Justice Moloi report which found him unfit for office and lead to his sacking.

Cele said he believes that a court will view the findings of the commission unjust.

Earlier Cele said he will "not engage in any pointless back chattings but “simply shut up and go home”.

Speaking at a news conference at the National Press Club in Pretoria, the former police commissioner said he “needed no golden handshake”.

He said that he loved his job even though it was difficult but “I’m not dying for this job anymore”.

Cele wished the new police commissioner Mangwashi Victoria Phiyega the best of luck.

He thanked South Africans who have shown him their support and said he is “walking tall”.

In a frank statement read out at the National Press Club, Cele said he faced three years of persecution by the media, singling out the Sunday Times newspaper.

“Reject the loud propaganda of the loud minority who writes newspapers,” he said.

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

    I thought the old turd said he's gonna shut-up and go home?

      charlesdumbwin.dumbwin - 2012-06-13 11:16

      That was a direct translation, 'shut up and go home' translated from his mother tongue means, 'screw this rooling putty I'm going to court'.

      That's what the meeting with Zuma was all about last weekend. He gets fired, challenge the findings in court, the court clears him and he moves to another post in KZN. This is politics. We can't be too naive.

      He should just pack his little saps suit case and leave. Never send a boy to do a woman's this case.

      rbphiri - 2012-06-13 11:26

      @ OvaprivilegedWhitey your comments lack any signs of intelligence, you just here to create further racial division. Every story posted you some how have to link it with race, your homosapien cranium cavity should come to terms with the fact that we are now in the 21st century, stop thinking backwards and stop affiliating everything with race you stupid little impotent caveman.

      When has an ANC politician ever done what he said he was going to do?

      Bryan - 2012-06-13 11:29

      Eish Bheki... so much of confusing yourself...

      Koos - 2012-06-13 11:29

      Who is going to pay for this?

      Jono - 2012-06-13 11:33

      Ova and your brother tsotsi...please act right before you get smacked right! you two probably have no clue what you are saying and u two have abusing the whole google search thing now for way to long!!!

      Susan - 2012-06-13 11:33

      OvaprivilegedWhitey - tell me something - is there anyone who does NOT act this way when their way of life is threatened. Racial intolerance is certainly not only limited to whites - it is evident in most posts on this forum. In any case - what does this have to do with racism? The race card is only played now so people have an excuse to say that the verdict was unjust.

      shakes.tshabala - 2012-06-13 11:38

      They earn to much money for doing nothing. Thats is why they in a position to challenge the state. SHAMELESS RASCALLS

      RSole - 2012-06-13 11:45

      @OvaprivilegedWhitey : Your are supposed to talk out the other end. It's mentality like yours and the rest of the clowns running this country that will make Somalia look like paradise. Now leave the grown ups to talk while you polish that chip on your shoulder.

      Joubs1957 - 2012-06-13 11:52

      Tsotsi-Baby - The white run courts are the only institutions of state that still show some resemblance of running at all. Everything else run by black majority has already gone down the drain.

      rbphiri - 2012-06-13 11:55

      @ Christiaan they have done what they promised to do, the proof is in poor service delivery, corruption and further taxation aka get rich off taxpayers' money schemes.

      rob.patrick.94 - 2012-06-13 12:06

      Will the taxman ( The minority ) pay for this? Its so lekker that you can just change your mind whenever it suits you. Next thing you know he will be at the CCMA suing for millions. A@@hole.

      Mike - 2012-06-13 13:06

      Mr Cele, FOCUS !

      rob.west.92123 - 2012-06-13 13:18

      @Ovaprivilegedwhitey, I`m a bit of a misanthropist myself, I can assure you this phenomenon is not limited to white people. I would say white people are ALSO "mean and uncaring, morally bankrupt and ethically flawed." My suspicion is that this trait, amongst humanity, has brought us to where we are today, i.e. - the dominant species.

  • Consolata - 2012-06-13 11:14

    OMG! Can he just get over it now!! We all know that zuma will give him a post as minister in goverment as a minister of something something and he will have more taxpayers money to abuse. maybe he will even get to be the head of the spear department.

  • charlesdumbwin.dumbwin - 2012-06-13 11:14

    Sounds like fatboy JuJu appealing all over again. Probably have the same outcome as well. Bye Bye Cele, please take the ANCYL tsotsis with you.

      charlesdumbwin.dumbwin - 2012-06-13 11:29

      Hey look, it's fatboy JuJu. How you doing comrade? How's life on the cattle farm, or have you gone back to building bridges? ps - if you're free on Saturday, please can you come tidy my garden?

      Mark - 2012-06-13 12:13

      @ Charles Dumbwin. You got it wrong, you will have to give Comrade DubulaAmanzi JuJu a BMW and a bucket of chicken on Saturday and his children will come clean your garden later...for bread money - 2012-06-13 12:25

      @ CD " if you're free on Saturday, please can you come tidy my garden?" The good Christian at work again I see.... racist. I agree with Dubula here. STFU if you have nothing constructive to say.

      charlesdumbwin.dumbwin - 2012-06-13 13:00

      jman - huh? I like teasing all the Malema supporters, why is that racist? Did you just pull the race card?

      arthur.hugh - 2012-06-13 13:18

      I'm with you on that one Jman. Dumface talks about how great his religion is, but belittles black people. I'm sure his God is taking notes. Enjoy that hell and brimstone chop.

  • gcogcolucious.mbobo - 2012-06-13 11:15

    Let the justice play his role.

      rbphiri - 2012-06-13 11:43

      I see stupid people. What ever you smoking will certainly make young kids quit drugs. If they see what nonesense it makes u comment.

  • Ishaad - 2012-06-13 11:20

    Why cant these guys just shut the hell up and accept that they did not do a good job, take his package and go. Now who is gonna pay for all the court appearances.

      charlesdumbwin.dumbwin - 2012-06-13 11:33

      we will, us taxpayers as we pay for this rooling putty circus to unfold. It's like reruns of the Young and the Clueless

  • gladlad - 2012-06-13 11:21

    Hes goin to court over the report...much like trying to clear his name...he ain't fighting to be reinstated.....

  • daan.phalaborwa - 2012-06-13 11:27

    Only in Afrika.

      Jack Oupa Mokwena - 2012-06-13 12:58

      you can say that again

  • nkulu.bgumede - 2012-06-13 11:32

    bheki, what happened to "shutting up and going home"?

  • thulasizweb.m - 2012-06-13 11:33

    I wonder whether the criminal case against Cele will be opened or put under the carpet ....but to be honest, Cele has done well regarding the crime. I for one do appreciate that !!!

  • richard.zanner - 2012-06-13 11:34

    Off course he does not need a golden hand shake. He has shaken his own hand so often that he has permanent shakes. As to walking tall, off course he is. He has Zuma's foot up his behind.

  • Ziggamann - 2012-06-13 11:34

    if the court finds against hime he will definitely see the police again

  • Loo - 2012-06-13 11:39

    he said "If Zuma ask me to go I will , ,then Zuma asked (More told him), then he was going to shut up and go .. Now he's going to court. Ok lets look at the chain of events ... erm ... he is reacting exactly as he ran the police service ,, ie. Non decisive with f**kall respect for the government and it's laws. Simple really

  • daniel.motlhatlhedi - 2012-06-13 11:41

    Bheki Cele you didnt apply for the job it ws given to you by anc so who are taking to court are you taking yourself to court because your an anc member. Stop crying like a baby and man up accept you messdup.

  • daniel.motlhatlhedi - 2012-06-13 11:42

  • Joubs1957 - 2012-06-13 11:50

    Mmmmmmmmmm typical double talk of someone who is not going to be satisfied with his "several million" severance package!

      charlesdumbwin.dumbwin - 2012-06-13 11:51

      Why do you think Malema is not happy at being fired from the ANC, he too needs the regime's money in order to survive.

  • crocky1234 - 2012-06-13 12:01

    Give it a rest already.. The tribe has spoken!

  • Gavin - 2012-06-13 12:09

    Cele's brain is solar powered, those hats he wears stop the sunlight from making contact with the solar panels.

  • mmuponisim - 2012-06-13 12:19

    Don`t bother mr cele, you are a loser and can go 2 court but you will not make it.

  • Sharon - 2012-06-13 12:21

    Hope the taxpayer doesn't have to pay for it!!

  • asivhanga - 2012-06-13 12:22

    Relax baba! Don't waste money with the court proceedings, rather invest your wealth. Lawyers will tell you lies, this is winnable it's nothing, where were they during the enquiry and during the lease deal? They should've adviced you before you make the lease deal. Now they want a piece of you. Just relax, it's not like you going to jail. The spear's time will come.

  • lownabester - 2012-06-13 12:27

    Cele, built a brigde and get over it. You are a disgrace.

  • mark.haupt.31 - 2012-06-13 12:38

    What a surprise!

  • sipho.gwabe - 2012-06-13 12:44

    lets see how it plays out

  • jaysonpaul.beckwith - 2012-06-13 12:48

    He walks the walk,,talks the talk,, hell he even looks the part. Remember he can always fall back on pimping..

  • johann.visser.98 - 2012-06-13 13:12

    a shame ,so the guy that is corrupt calls the courts un-justfull,get a life Cele or even better get out of this country we dont want corrupt goverment employees.Wat an idiot!!!!

  • Shiko - 2012-06-13 13:34

    \If I had more day to live,I would live it with the police\.Oh!dont make us cry Bheki.Again go well and your wish will be still be honoured by those left behind.

  • vukani.gumede - 2012-06-13 13:36

    He must think twice or else lose the whole package.

  • michael.georgiadis.50 - 2012-06-13 14:47

    At least Mr. Cele said he would fight the crime. Nobody before him had the guts. I want him back. He made a mistake with that Roux friend of his. It was nonsense. He should admit it, take the heat and get on with the job. he's tough on criminals. Now we have a civilian who might be a humanitarian also - maybe she gives the criminals more rights than they arelady have.
