The KwaZulu-Natal MEC for Transport, Community Safety and Liaison, Mxolisi Kaunda has commended the police for arresting two suspects who were selling a fraudulent drivers licence.

Police received information about two males who attempted to sell a fraudulent drivers’ licence for R2500 to a female applicant who had failed a driving test at Rossburgh Drivers Licence Testing Center (DLTC). The police acted swiftly and apprehended the suspects who were in possession of a temporary fake licence with the particulars of the applicant.

Kaunda praised the police for their sterling work and urged them to conduct a thorough investigation and establish whether the suspects were not in cahoots with the officials of the Department.

“We have declared 2018 a year of improved road safety which includes rooting out corruption in our DLTCs throughout the province. Fraudulent drivers licences contribute significantly to the road crashes and fatalities in the country. Therefore, the department will leave no stone unturned in fighting corruption in the issuing of such licences,” said Kaunda.

He also warned officials who are involved in corruption that they will be dealt with harshly and be removed completely from the Department.

Kaunda thanked those who provided the police with information which led to the arrest of the suspects.

“Your action was a clear demonstration that fighting crime and corruption is a collective responsibility. KwaZulu-Natal recorded a significant decline in road crashes and fatalities during the festive season and we will not allow this achievement to be undermined by acts of criminality” said Kaunda.
