Police minister Bheki Cele has continued to deny that he partied up a storm with his daughter at a Cape Town nightclub.
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.
This comes after entertainment blogger Musa Khawula posted videos on Twitter on Friday evening claiming Cele was at Coco nightclub in Cape Town with his daughter Khumbuza Cele.
Cele did not take these claims well and threatened to take legal action.
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 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.
According to a report by TimesLives Khawula, said he had not apologised and has no intentions to do so but it seems like Khawula has removed the videos of Cele by Monday evening.
He claimed the threats of legal action 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.
