Twitter users suggest that Bheki Cele’s alcohol ban is personally motivated

Published on

Twitter users have unearthed an article from 2013, reporting that Minister Bheki Cele’s residence was broken into and thieves stole his expensive whiskey, suggesting that is the motivation for the alcohol ban.

On Wednesday, 8 April 2020, Twitter users started circulating an article from 2013, which reported on a burglary at Minister of Police, Bheki Cele’s Umhlanga residence. The article alleged that the criminals stole his expensive whiskey. The report is now being used by social media users as the reasoning for the minister’s no-nonsense approach to the current alcohol ban and his desire to extend the alcohol ban beyond the national lockdown period.

Many have concluded that the article is evidence that his disdain for alcohol is not politically motivated, but rather, is a personal gripe against the thieves that stole his expensive whiskey. Other social media users have weighed in on the matter by appealing to the masses to apologise to the minister, in the hopes that he will relax the alcohol restrictions and possibly consider lifting the ban soon.
