“I deny that there is a frosty relationship,” Cele told the SA Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) hearings into the July riots on Friday. He said he and Sitole had a “working relationship”. “I was a national commissioner ... I minimised any conflict. I had a wonderful team. The stats had never been so good,” Cele said of his tenure as national police commissioner, before becoming police minister. 

Cele said the “real” frosty relationship was among SAPS' top management.“I would like to see the commissioner take his management and walk in unison. I hope this organisation will find its way and do the job it is supposed to do and resolve matters that are supposed to resolved. headtopics.com

Bheki Cele lays blame for inaction during July riots and looting on police commissioner’s doorstepPolice minister Bheki Cele could not have provided “executive direction” during the July unrest and looting because he did not receive any intelligence reports from national police commissioner Khehla Sitole or crime intelligence. The responsibility ends with Bheki Cele, NOT with his subordinate. That is why he is so well paid, and is entrusted with SA's safety. Abdicating their responsibilities to protect SA citizens They couldn't phone one another? Shifting blame the whole day
