Limpopo Cop In custody For Allegedly Demanding Bribe After Dagga Bust

A Limpopo police officer has been arrested, five years after allegedly taking an R2 100 bribe.

The 41-year-old Sekhukhune Police Station officer was arrested on Wednesday by the Hawks’ Serious Corruption Investigation Unit.
The arrest is in connection with a 2017 incident, in which the officer and a colleague stopped a man while he was driving a tractor. The officers searched the driver, and allegedly found cannabis in his pocket, said Hawks spokesperson Captain Matimba Maluleke.

“The duo allegedly demanded gratification from the driver. It is further reported that a total of R2 100 was paid by the victim to the police and he was subsequently released. The matter was later reported to the Hawks for investigation,” said Maluleke.

The officer is expected to appear in the Sekhukhune Magistrate’s Court on Thursday.
Police are still searching for the second police officer.
