The entertainment blogger who posted the videos of Police Minister Bheki Cele at a Cape Town nightclub reportedly said he “had no intention of apologizing after the threats”.
BLOGGER DELETED TWEETS ON CELE
Blogger Musa Khawula has yet to apologize, according to a TimesLives report, and claimed that Cele’s threats of legal action were “a ploy to intimidate him.”
“I think there are more pressing issues in South Africa than wasting SAPS resources on personal gain,” Khawula said.
KHAWULA SAID THREATS WERE A SET TO INTRODUCE IT
BUT on Monday evening Khawula had withdrawn the tweets by Célé.
It comes after Khawula posted videos to Twitter on Friday night claiming Cele was at Coco nightclub in Cape Town with her daughter Khumbuza Cele.
