Two police officers were arrested on Friday, following a bust in which they allegedly accepted a bribe from a member of the public.
The arrest was captured on video and shows how police descended on a 48-year-old police captain and a 56-year-old warrant officer who were seated together at a restaurant at Zevenwacht Mall in Kuilsriver on Friday.
Briefly.co.za learned the warrant officer was stripped of his official badges and handcuffed while asking: “What’s happening now?”
Western Cape police spokesperson Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana said the men were charged with corruption “after they accepted a bribe from a member of the public”.
