11 Tshwane Metropolitan Police officers arrested

Eleven Tshwane Metropolitan Police officers aged between 32 and 49 years were arrested in the early morning raid by the Hawks Serious Corruption Investigation and Crime Intelligence team .

The arrests of one female and 10 males emanating from an ongoing investigation which began in November 2018, following allegations that the officials demanded and received gratifications from motorists thereby allowing un- roadworthy vehicles and those who commit serious motoring offences on our national roads to go unpunished.

Such actions have created lawlessness in our roads, thus leading to road rage at times and serious accidents on our national roads.

The traffic officers will appear on Tuesday 11 August 2020, at the Pretoria, Temba and Hammanskraal Magistrate Courts.

The operation is still ongoing.
