SAPS cops in hell for demanding bribes from Zimbabweans


South African Police Service

POLOKWANE – TWO members of the South African Police Service (SAPS) working in Polokwane are due to appear in court on Monday for allegedly soliciting bribes from Zimbabwean travellers, an official confirmed.

The alleged corrupt police officers were arrested on Thursday and are set to appear at the Polokwane Magistrate’s Court.

Polokwane provincial police spokesman, Colonel Ronel Otto, confirmed the arrest.

Col Otto said the two cops entered the bus coming from Zimbabwe before they demanded R100 cash from each passenger on the bus claiming some of them had expired and invalid passports.

“While they were busy collecting money, some of the passengers attacked the policemen and they took a belt, shirt and name tag of one of them,” said Col Otto.

He said when the police officers were overpowered, they then fled away from the scene heading back the police station.

Upon arrival, they found the Zimbabwean bus had already reported them at the same police station upon which the culprits were positively identified and immediately arrested.
