Abramjee Stop the sale of alcohol and let people move around without police n soldiers and lets see what will happen learn from history The decrease in crime rate is because of the there is nobody to rob outside we all inside...and alcohol has nothing to do with this. Dont impose your personal vendetta on South Africa as a whole. Please!

All along he was not aware of the alcohol abuse n the effect of it in SA. Chill mabhekzin it’s the calm before the storm, if y’all extend this MF. Y’all gon see what serious crime is. Don't lie Abramjee Causation not necessarily correlation Abramjee How do you come to a conclusion such as this? If movement is restricted, crimes of all sorts will obviously be down. I think this is dumb.

Nothing to do with alcohol, but because of the police presence...plus most are in lockdown Just go and do your work... No no no...😂😂😂 The idiot is talking rubbish as usual. Try walking down a street in the middle of the night. You won't get far. How does he explain the high incidences of domestic violence during the Lockdown?

You mean the visibility of forces Mr Cele bc after this, hijackings, rapes, murders, robbery the daily drills Mr Cele will start again js to show you also that gangs don't fear you n ur force. You even starting to look like a gang member urslf huh Please up your game. The readers of this article also listened to Cele and is disagreeing. Selective reporting, biased, this version more sensational? Must take the media with a pinch of salt?

Thank god I am not related to such a naive individual. He is out of moves and try Trying to show his boss that he is working,,, can he just shut up Bua nnywana Mxim What are y'all sayin' kahle kahle? Because of they're working day and night,they have to continue working like this Except for police violence?

Alcohol isn't the problem. You can't commit crime while drunk ai🙄 Looks like he is getting drunk on all the confiscated liquor Does he really believe cash in transit robbers do their thing when they drunk OR hijackers taking your car when they are drunk on Zamalek And this is the Minsiter of Police ,if Corona doesnt kill us laughter will

Crime is less because of the visibility of police, alcohol has nothing to do with crime. Please open alcohol outlets with restrictions hayikhona As much as people do not want to admit it, alcohol ban has an impact on crime. People are less likely to stab each other, shoot, start unnecessary fights and... There's a lot of madness that alcohol accounts for

Can I also say that gbv numbers went up, due to habitual drinkers (&smokers) frustrated at not getting alcohol, and being restricted at home? Wow - GenBheki_Cele had some brain movement. Must be very proud of himself to come up with that lame reason. Next Dr Doolittle DrZweliMkhize will announce their is a huge drop in whooping cough cases because of the unavailability of cigarettes! F🎶cking idiots!

Um, duh. There aint no one out there. Not all burglars are drunk 😂😂😂😂 Ai fok toggie.... maybe he should think about all the police and soldier presence 🤷🏾‍♂️ Unavailability of alcohol🤔 There's a TRADE-OFF between Decrease in serious crime as a result of unavailability of alcohol and Increase in women abuse as a result of lockdownSA. Endwomenabuse

No more alcohol will take us forward Who commits serious crime while intoxicated? Duh!!! It's mostly because of high visibility of trigger happy cops backed by SANDF, but to a certain minimal extent the absence of liquor Er ... Guess there was no interest, we can do better once bottle stores are open. In other countries, it takes the whole security cluster to fight crime. Here is corrupt police and Metro police job only. Imagine the investments we can attract if we sortout crime? Boarders?

What about the increase of GBV ? Is He going to say something about it ? Or it is because the population's movements are restricted. Abramjee This guy doesn't think before talking,SANDF,Metropolice and SAPS are everywhere to force ppl to stay at home,alcohol has nothing to do with crime So GBV is not serious

GBV in the rise Or it could be because people are at home and not driving or going to ATMs and the police/military are more visible. Le bowa masepa Abramjee True So we ban alcohol than you will stop talking kak? Has he seen the bottle store looting - looks pretty serious to me. Crimes that should never have happen ex pet for the lockdown laws.

Abramjee Fac crime gone down whether due to alcohol ban or not is immaterial. The visibility of the police is the reason. Police is finally doing their jobs. interesting - Sure. That's why there's serious crimes...because the criminal would be drunk at the time. Smh lol Cele Abramjee Cele you talking 💩

Abramjee Doos Abramjee the only reason crime has decreased is due to the lockdown it has nothing to do with alcohol It is due the lockdown and not of that alcohol People in thiss comment section are in denial. Thee fact is over 60% of all crime in this country are alcohol related. Others such as CIT, GBV can be classified in the minority and aren't related. The fact is alcohol is responsible for flooding our hospitals and pol stations

Abramjee Especially road deaths Ndosi, this good Friday is gonna see far less road deaths. BhekiCele StayAtHomeSA Abramjee What rubbish! Abramjee Are we trying to defeat COVID-19 or Crime in RSA? Gender base violence is a serious crime and that has increased. Looking through rose tinted glasses! If they applied the rule of law always that would not be the case! Has been proven!

Only people drinking are in parliament now. Brains But we get harrasment in our home yard,always scared He must stop irritating us and hide behind alcohol, he must do his job. It's a LOCKDOWN hence low stats Criminals are home Nonsense Well uhm👀 Can South Africa be like this waya-waya bathong yoh motho atla aikhutsa dinokwane tsa Gauteng🤦‍♀️

I guess the looting of the liquor store in Langa might change this - apart from the fact that the looting constitutes about 50+ individual charges of breaking in &theft. Also reduction in trauma cases induced by alcohol. Alcohol 🍷 has nothing to do with that, just that your man and woman in blue are not interested in dealing with crime here in SA... Period

Bullshit. Decrease is because if lockdown. Gets your facts straight. Don’t feed us bull. Thank you. He has his own personal agenda with regards to alcohol that he is trying to push Um, interesting... Might it not have something to do with the lock-down currently taking place in this country? Sure. You're on lockdown how can you serious crime?

Although this might be not the only reason but the unavailability of alcohol has helped to some extent. This guy really is dumb. There is a decrease in crime because for once the government has deployed a large number of police officers with the help of soldiers to safeguard the streets. If it wasn't for covid-19 crime would still be high.

Kak Uhmmm kindly show Cele this video...happend today in Langa, Cape Town Post Corona, surely the government can do something about it the alcohol consumption in this country. Close as many unlicensed bars/shebeens and issue no licenses. Enforce law that'll govern these businesses and strict rules to be put in place

GenBheki_Cele has been terribly misinformed and a fool on a powertrip. This is probably one of his most uneducated statements to date. Yep, I bet those CIT guys drink before committing those heists Utter Nonsense, the Government have no idea what they are talking about !!! .crime still rife I just wish this minister Cele and Mr fix it could get also the Corona virus as well so they could stay at home too

Crime is not caused by alcohol, its just that there's less robbery because stores are closed and there's not much people in the cities bhanaC Nothing to do with Covid19SA. Ne? Violence? GP_CommSafety Gender Based Violence isn't a serious crime according to Cele.... Any reason why you are re-posting a post that you've already posted earlier - Likes, Retweets, Comments, What, and Why? We all know it's absolute rubbish, with zero foundation to substantiate the statement!

This has nothing to do with alcohol now want credit where its not due.i think people who wear these hats are crazy at times😂 Maybe its because there hasn't been this much Police presence on the streets since the 80's? Visibility is an essential component of Policing,ask the British I wonder who is your source....

Nothing to do with everyone being locked at home? No, it's because people can't go out. Where is the evidence? 🤣🤣🤣 But watch out, things are going to heat up once lockdown is called off. CIT robbers will be observing closely as business starts to roll back. His dumbo People are home bound, what alcohol have to do with anything? Open the gates but keep your alcohol and let's see if the crime stats will stay low

Nah it's not alcohol but because of SANDF and Police. These thugs prefer drugs that knock all the human emotion out Haaibo lack of alcohol has nothing to do with this, ga re bana tlheng ntate cele yog this guy What did he smoke? “Serious” crime is not influenced by alcohol availability. I have not heard of cash heist gangsters who carry out their robberies intoxicated by alcohol.

Correlation does not imply causation.. If people REALLY need to get their rocks off, they can smoke weed, alcohol is a legit killer. Destroys lives, and took my dad from me when I was young. 💀 Take2tours GenBheki_Cele is a delusional fool with a power trip complex. Sale of alcohol had nothing to do with it. More than likely the thousands of police officers that finally started doing what they get paid for.

Babylon will always rise it once won and will do it again I agree with him , without alcohol we are living nice because we there's no people who killed by thugs because of alcohol Not because of alcohol but availability of cops on the streets Coronavirus -measures Unavailability of alcohol or lack of movement why u people giving alcohol so much credit?

Dont you think the decrease might also be bc of visability Uhm no...I think it has everything to do with the fact that people are forced to stay home... honestly think bhekicele_com is not1 of d brightest ministers. Hw cn u conclude dt crime hs been minimised by closing sale of alcahol. primary student wd differ & tll u dt ds pendemic hs nt only affected stock exchange bt also criminals. Imagine money heist in this empty roads

Wish it could stay like that forever. 😞 its not unavailaility of alcohol wena moron, its the presence of cops all over, criminals are scared

You mean it has nothing to do with the police being more visible mr cele? Covid19SA 🙄
