Cele report handed to Zuma

2012-05-21 22:34

Cape Town - President Jacob Zuma has received the report of a commission of inquiry into suspended police commissioner Bheki Cele, his office said on Monday.

"The board of inquiry chairperson Judge Jakes Moloi presented the report to the president yesterday, 20 May 2012," presidential spokesperson Mac Maharaj said in a statement.

"The president is studying the report and its findings and will make his response known in due course."

Maharaj could not be reached for further comment.

The commission was appointed by Zuma in November to probe Cele's fitness to remain in office and allegations of misconduct relating to two leases for new police headquarters in Pretoria and Durban, which the public protector declared unlawful.

The team leading evidence against Cele called for his dismissal, but he has denied any wrongdoing.

    Why is this taking so longs? Cele is entitled to all the benefits while waiting for zuma to apply his mind. Yho! Kumnandi emzantsi.

      Simphiwe he is still drawing a salary and has all the perks of his job and he will not have to pay it back if he is found guilty. Neither will he have to pay back any money acquired through shady deals while in office, nice place to work but it is still tax money that pays him

    He is studying the report ???? ya right. The Zuma spin doctors are looking at the report maybe. Cele is a Zuma appointee and he must therefore shoulder full responsibility for everything that Cele did since his appointment.....but he won't will he...he is weakness personified. Q. Does Zuma even know anyone within his party that is not corrupt or useless? AND Messres ANC how about a big uproar and a furore about CELE disrespecting the President and the office when it is revealed that he is a corrupt neanderthal drunk on power? Not a peep from the ranks of sheep who follow blindly into the abyss...not a peep.

    I really haven't got time for this. We have more serious issues at Goodman to attend to. Where's my blue light?

  • azwihangwisi.mphaphuli - 2012-05-22 06:51

    we definately need an experienced career police official as a national head of the police force. No more political appointments

      Gerhard - 2012-05-22 07:20

      Agree 100%. The only way to "fix"the police force, is with a man with integrity to lead it!

  • Schmee - 2012-05-22 07:14

    For goodness sake this is bad timing. Zuma is working hard at getting it off. The painting that is...

  • carpejugulim - 2012-05-22 07:19

    This saga will be drawn out for as long as possible as well. Such a shame there is no accountability or responsibility for those in a position of alledged power
