The South African Police Service (SAPS) has come to the defence of Police Minister, Bheki Cele partying on new year’s eve (NYE). They claim that the video is an old one and not taken during the amended level 3 lockdown.

The video has been shared widely on social media and shows Cele celebrating in a crowded venue. However, the SAPS says the Minister did not break lockdown regulations as the celebration he is shown in dates back to 2017.

“Posting such a picture when the country is dealing with a serious pandemic of Covid-19, of which the Minister also recently was a victim, is not only reckless but irresponsible to the extreme,” his office said in a statement.
