Bheki Cele: Over 100 suspects arrested in Philippi operation

Mr Cele is not messing around

Police Minister Bheki Cele on Sunday said more than 100 suspects have been arrested since operations started in Philippi this week.

Cele was in the area on Sunday morning where he interacted with residents.

Eleven people were killed in Philippi East last week, prompting the deployment of the South African National Defence Force (SANDF).

Cele said they have adhered to calls from residents to fight gang-related crimes.

“We have been escalating our operations in this province, including mainly the call that has been made by communities of bringing the SANDF members.”
