While die-hard ANC supporters argue that Action Society director Ian Cameron should have addressed Cele ‘with the respect’ automatically bequeathed to government ministers, a video of Cameron’s comments preceding Cele’s monumental meltdown has surfaced.
Cameron called out Cele for ‘politicizing crime’ saying that victims want justice and ordinary South Africans who are affected by high crime rates don’t care about his comments on the constitution and devolution.
Cameron was referring to Cele‘s response to calls from Western Cape leaders for the South African Police Service to be managed at the provincial level.
So this is what raised Bheki Cele’s high blood pressure 🤣🤣🤣 pic.twitter.com/HC0jcG87mC

His comments clearly rubbed Cele up the wrong way, who’s been under constant fire since last year’s July riots and most recently the Enyobeni tragedy, in which 21 children were killed in a tavern in the Eastern Cape.
Cameron was then forcefully removed from the venue by the police.
Watch the video:
There was a tense exchange as Police Minister, Bheki Cele, met Gugulethu residents today. Action Society accused him of neglecting the Western Cape. The group wants policing devolved to the province. #DStv403 pic.twitter.com/TKwp2L6n2C

Speaking to Bongani Bingwa on 702 Radio on Wednesday, Cameron said Cele needed to “grow up”.
So far, support seems to be tilted in favour of Cameron who threw down the gauntlet to Cele and challenged him to walk the country’s high-risk crime areas in plain clothes, as an ordinary citizen, before politicising crime.
