20 Limpopo traffic cops in the dock for corruption


JOHANNESBURG, September 12 – As many as 20 traffic officers from various districts in Limpopo are appearing in various magistrates courts facing charges of corruption.

The Road Traffic Management Corporation (RMTC) said the “disgraced” traffic officials began appearing on Monday.

“They are criminally charged with corruption, theft and defeating the ends of justice,” said the RMTC, which said the suspects were “shamefully arrested” by members of its anti-corruption unit together with the Directorate of Priority Crime Investigations – better known as the Hawks.

In December 2017, 20 people including traffic officers, licensing officers, and their civilian collaborators were arrested in Tzaneen and Greater Letaba municipal area.
