The DA welcomes Parliament’s Joint Ethics Committee’s recommendation that Police Minister Bheki Cele must apologise to the house following his “shut up” tirade last year. While the committee recommended that Cele apologises “in the house for his conduct towards Mr Ian Cameron”, the DA believes that the Police Minister must also apologise to him personally and in public. Cele insulted Cameron in public and should therefore apologise publicly.
Since his appointment to the top job in early 2018, the Minister has caused irreparable harm to the South African Police Service (SAPS), and despite growing calls for the presidency to rid cabinet of the useless minister, Cele remains ensconced at the Union Buildings.
President Ramaphosa’s cabinet stands as a glaring testament to incompetence and disgrace, with ministers who excel at fabricating lies, deploy protectors to assault citizens, master the art of making hollow promises, publicly berate responsible citizens, engage in shameless looting of public funds, appoint cronies and cadres over merit, and consistently fail to fulfill the basic duties expected of their positions, actively contributing to the dismantling of our nation.
It is long overdue for this lamentable assembly to vacate their posts and allow competent leadership to rescue the country from their disastrous reign.
