A video recording at OR Tambo International Airport apparently shows how a security officer receives a bribe from a foreign traveler. The video is now widely distributed on social media networks with warnings not to be caught in the trap.

The video shows the security officer examining a person’s passport after which she receives money from the passenger. An anti corruption activist later uploaded the video to Twitter and said it was also on Facebook, but would also like to see the incident thoroughly investigated.

It apparently turned out that the officer took R100 from the passenger, and it seems that the passport was in order, but what made the passenger decide to pay the bribe?

How Cyril Ramaphosa is going to stop the evil is unknown and political analysts say it is an impossible task because wherever you turn is just corruption.
