Bheki Cele trends on social media for over 24 hours due to his command to South Africans as regards to December 31st, 2020.
In the video, the SA Minister of Police said there is no December 31st for anyone, due to the nation’s return to level 3 of the lockdown.
He further said that everyone must be in bed by 9 pm on that day.
There is no December 31st. There won’t be any hitting of tins here. By 9 o’clock everyone should be in bed. So it is important to note that for that to happen we [SAPS] need to monitor that,” he said.
This message didn’t sit well with lots of people, and they’ve taken to social media to spill out their reactions to the video which has now gone viral on socials.
Bheki has been called out by South Africans over the abuse of power.

What I hate the most about Bheki Cele is his language usage. He’s always addressing the black people. He’s not addressing the nation in his rants. He sees a black person as the one who breaks the Covid19 laws.

In my opinion, Bheki Cele is a really bad Minister 🥺

They literally unbanned alcohol and Bheki Cele disappeared into thin air.
Alcohol banned again and he’s suddenly the most visible minister on earth 🥲

We understand the curfew, but ordering us to sleep at 21h00 is disrespectful. We are not Bheki Cele’s children. Voetsek. Abuse of power. #southafricancoronavirus
