Cele denies instructing police to shoot-to-kill
22 April 2011
National Police Commissioner Bheki Cele has denied ever instructing police to "shoot-to-kill."
Speaking in Chatsworth in KwaZulu-Natal, Cele challenged anyone with a recorded clip or written confirmation of him saying he instructed police to shoot to kill.
He lashed out at journalists who he claims wrongly interpret what he says.
Cele’s alleged statement came under the spotlight after Andries Tatane was killed, allegedly by police, during service delivery protests at Ficksburg earlier this month.
