South Africans have been wondering why their Minister of Police Bheki Cele seems so combative in his fight against the selling of alcohol during the lockdown period and after.

A quick search on the internet revealed that Cele had a nasty interaction with some alcoholic robbers in 2013 who broke into his house and drank his expensive whisky.

According to the Sunday Tribune which published the story the criminals tried to get into his Umhlanga home through a window and failed. They then broke into the garage and got into the cars.

They are reported to have drank a bottle of expensive whisky found in one of the cars, and stole valuables and two other bottles of whisky valued at R1 000 each.

"Our community is under siege, there is no doubt about that. What pains me is that I could do something if I was still on the force," Cele was quoted as saying by the paper.

He and his family were asleep in the house at the time.
