The Ethekwini Metro police department says it’s investigating a video that shows a Metro policeman accepting money from a motorist in the Durban CBD.
The video shows an officer wearing the Metro uniform.
The officer talks to the motorist, who is captured placing banknotes in the officer’s notepad.
The officer then walks away. Acting deputy head of the Metro Police, Sbonelo Mchunu, says their investigation will reveal exactly what took place.
He says they have seen the video and have taken all th evidence at their disposal to the inspectorate division which is dealing with the preliminary investigation.
He says: “The department’s stance on any form of corruption and crime is to get rid of rogue officers after a fair judicial process has taken place. We have a lot of them that have been dismissed. As a department and the municipality we do not tolerate such acts by police officers.”
