The entertainment blogger who posted the videos of police minister Bheki Cele in a nightclub in Cape Town reportedly said he ‘has no intention of apologising after threats’.
THE BLOGGER HAS REMOVED THE TWEETS ABOUT CELE
According to a report by TimesLives, blogger Musa Khawula has not yet apologised and has claimed that the threats of legal action by Cele were “a ploy to bully” him.
“I feel there are more pressing issues in SA than to have SAPS waste resources on a personal matter,” said Khawula.
KHAWULA SAID THE THREATS WERE A PLOY TO BULLY HIM
BUT on Monday evening, Khawula had removed the tweets of Cele.
This comes after Khawula posted videos on Twitter on Friday evening claiming Cele was at Coco nightclub in Cape Town with his daughter Khumbuza Cele.
CELE DENIED THE CLAIMS THREATENING TO TAKE ACTION
Speaking on eNCA, Cele denied the claims and said he wanted them retracted or he would take legal action.
“There are two Khumbuza Celes, but that’s not my daughter. My daughter is at home in Durban,” said Cele.
CELE WANTS KHAWULA TO RETRACT THE STATEMENT AND APOLOGISE
His spokesperson Lirandzu Themba confirmed on Twitter that the person in Khawula’s Twitter videos is not the police minister’s daughter. She also said that Cele “plans to take necessary action” if Khawula does not retract the statements and apologise for them.
Cele did not take these claims well and threatened to take legal action.
THE MINISTER WAS WIDELY CRITICISED ON TWITTER
Cele was criticised on Twitter after the videos were posted, with some saying he was a hypocrite because he often calls for stricter restrictions on alcohol sales and nightclubs.
