Police Minister denounces impostor social media accounts

PRETORIA – The ministry of police has noted with concern the proliferation of social media accounts purported to be belonging to the Minister of Police, General Bheki Cele, even after a warning was issued two years ago by this office against such fake social media accounts. The Minister has no social media account, be it private or official.
Minister Cele has denounced any social media account in his name as fake and has issued a stern warning to those impostors whose motive for impersonating the Minister cannot be for anything else but to draw unsuspecting social media users into their criminal activities.
Investigations by the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation (Hawks) are currently underway and at an advanced stage to identify and locate these fake account operators, and bring them to book.
