The SOuth Africa Police Service must rid the institution of bad eggs who drag the Service into disrepute and ridicule.
How can one imagine that the very officer who is suppose to bring sanity on South African roads are the ones causing untoward chaos, a road user exclaimed after the incident.
A heavily drunk police officer shamelessly obstructed traffic, thus causing helpless motorist to run into an upcoming vehicle.
Gauteng police on Wednesday confirmed that a man who was filmed outside the Sandton police station and who appeared drunk is a policeman. The off-duty official is now facing sanction.
A video surfaced of the man who was outside the police station. It was claimed that he was an on-duty police officer.
Getting to the station, the entrance to the police station was already crowded because the Dempocratic Alliance was about to lay charges of fraud‚ racketeering and corruption against VBS Mutual Bank executives and its majority shareholder‚ Vele Investments.
“It has since been confirmed that the man on the video is a police member who was off-duty and on vacation leave on the day of the incident‚” Gauteng police spokeswoman Brig Mathapelo Peters said.
Peters said Gauteng Police Commissioner Lt-Gen Deliwe de Lange has sanctioned an urgent departmental investigation into this matter.
