She said she was happy with the support she received from Cele, and that he had apologised for the manner in which the family came to know about their loved one's demise.
"It is unAfrican and I feel their pain. As Africans we regard the birth and death of a child as a serious thing. You can't just get it from the streets," Cele said.
"Sometimes there is no control on young people running amok on social media. I don't know how it happened, but it is a serious matter. We are working on implementing a social media policy."
Cele said he was concerned that officers die young, leaving their families devastated.
"We have established an education trust for police officers who die on duty to help with education. If you die at that age you have not accumulated any form of pension so you leave your parents and children destitute," he said.
Cele confirmed that three suspects have been arrested over Vukeya's killing.
