Two more Tshwane Metro traffic officers arrested on corruption charges

GAUTENG: The Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) has called for swift and decisive disciplinary action to be taken against Tshwane Metro Police traffic officers arrested on allegations of corruption and malfeasance.

This comes as two more officers were arrested today on suspicion that they had been involved in extorting money from motorists who transgressed road regulations. Eleven other officers from the same Metro were arrested on Friday.

The arrests followed an 18 months investigation, dubbed Operation Bunny, which was initiated by the RTMC’s national traffic anti-corruption unit. The investigation was prompted by numerous members of the public who were dissatisfied by the unprofessional conduct of some of the Tshwane Metro Police officers.

The 13 suspects aged between 32 and 57 years will, on Tuesday, appear in the Pretoria, Hammanskraal, and Temba magistrate courts.

The RTMC would like the Tshwane municipality to also initiate its own disciplinary without delay.  A strong message needs to be sent out indicating that corruption destroys lives and it will not be tolerated within the law enforcement fraternity.

Investigators who were involved in Operation Bunny are ready, able and willing to assist the municipality in their disciplinary process that will assist it to restore ethical and professional conduct in the ranks of their law enforcement officers.
