MINISTER OF POLICE GENERAL BHEKI CELE ISSUES A STRONG WARNING AGAINST ALL OPERATORS OF FAKE TWITTER ACCOUNTS OPERATING IN HIS NAME

The Minister of Police General Bheki Cele has noted with concern and further issued a strong warning against all the culprits who are operating fake Twitter accounts impersonating him. The Minister has expressed his disappointment and utter disgust at some of the Twitter posts from the fake accounts.

The Minister wishes to state categorically clear that any Twitter account or any social media account operating in his name is Fake and that no one is authorized to operate any social media account in his name. All official communication on matters of the office of the Minister of Police will be communicated accordingly by his office.

The mushrooming Twitter handles in the name of the Minister are viewed as sinister and are aimed at dragging the name of Minister Cele in all dirty and tricky mud games in the social media space for reasons best known to the ghost operators.

Social media remains a respectable communication platform that should be exempted from any abuse by ghost operators.

Minister Cele has also observed all social media comments from genuine individuals since his appointment and has positively welcomed and received all of them as building blocks towards a concerted effort in creating a safe South Africa for all.
