- A clip of a police officer that appears to be very intoxicated to the point where he could not even stand, has been shared online by a very disappointed South African woman

It is definitely not the first time in South Africa that a video has surfaced of a visibly intoxicated local police officer. Heading to Facebook, a user with the name Kobie Nieuwenhuis shared a video of an officer that appears to be so drunk, she can't even stand on her two feet.
"Hand in your weapons - SAPS is going to protect us," the video was captioned.
Mzansi is disgusted and disappointed
After watching the video, locals were both disgusted and disappointed by the inexplicable conduct of a law enforcement official. Read some of their comments below:
Aroon Chander said:
"Well this is South Africa land of milk and honey"
Manie Krause said:
"Incompetent, no inner pride...that's why the citizens don't respect any police, metro police, for them its MY JOB"

Briefly News also reported that a short clip of a visibly drunk South African police officer having an argument with locals has been shared online. In the clip, which was shared by @MondliBrianZum1 on Twitter, the drunk cop can be seen sitting behind the wheel of his police van while speaking to locals, who seem to be complaining about something.
The clip was soon retweeted by Herman Mashaba, who shared in South Africans' disappointment in the officer's disgraceful behaviour. He also called on police officers to stop finding themselves embroiled in such scandalous situations.
"I am making a special appeal to our law enforcement officers to fight this evil that is tarnishing their entire profession. Not all police officers are like this, but your silence will ultimately affect you as well. That would be a sad day," he commented on the clip.
