Please can SOMEONE explain to me, slowly, what the F%#K Bheki Cele needs a private jet for?
Our business travels a serious amount, but I mean a serious amount! I’m probably one of thirty or more people who fly over 60 times a year and even we have done the math’s on a plane with the results being a saddening waste of funds. If that’s the case can someone please explain how the CAPEX for Bheki’s plane passed under the taxpayers noses?
I suppose we should have been more skeptical of a dude who came into office looking like this . . .
Now don’t get me wrong here, I dig Bheki! He is cool, he came in saying things like “Chest in, Stomach out” (which on a sub note is perhaps impossible for 90% of our police force) but at least he had the right game face on!
He even defended South Africa vehemently when the worlds press condemned us for allowing the slaying of the regal Anni Dewani by calling Shrien a ‘monkey’ who came all the way to South Africa to kill his wife – a bit harsh maybe but I like his gumption!
Having said all of this, are we not a little concerned that a dude dressing like a mining magnet wouldn’t abuse his situation?
Really? Are we that surprised that today we found out he has spent over R1.5m jetting himself (and apparently some high ranking officials – yeah like pole dancers are high ranking!) around the country?
Surprised? No, but a little pissed off with the number of people in power lambasting serious amounts of money all over the world, when people are outside tonight in Gauteng fighting for their lives because of weather like this . . .
Let’s not get even onto things like poverty, running water, starvation, electricity, healthcare, education and the list of boxes not checked by the government goes on and ON!
It’s got to stop somewhere! I’m not saying we need to be drastic, but what I am saying is somehow (and sadly I don’t have the answer) we need to say STOP! We need to dig in our heels and say NO MORE!
At some point we have to start judging people in positions of power more harshly, otherwise, all we will be left with in the end is . . .
The most ironic part of the entire affair is that Bheki has now launched a probe into inflated tenders given out by the Police Dept . . . soon he’ll be referred to as “Robin Hood”
