Police Minister Faces R2.6 Million Fine for Unlawful Detention, Gauteng High Court Delivers Landmark Judgment


In a groundbreaking development, Police Minister Bheki Cele finds himself ensnared in a legal quagmire of immense proportions. Reports emerging this evening reveal a seismic ruling by the Gauteng High Court, which has levied a staggering fine of R2.6 million against the minister for his involvement in the wrongful detention of a Gauteng man named Xulu.
