Seeing the clip, Mzansi citizens were furious. This is just one more person contributing to one of the biggest things that are wrong with our beloved country. Most were not even surprised as this is a daily occurrence in SA.
People took to the comment section to share their feelings:
Maria Molebogeng said:
“You are the one enabling this corruption, refuse to pay a bribe, I'm so disgusted by the traffic cop, when you see them on the road you will think they are doing their jobs but no, they are busy taking bribes. I'm reminded of the incident this morning, a traffic cop was nearly knocked by a car because she was running to stop a truck, she didn't even care there was oncoming traffic, that's how corrupt they are.”
Hawu: Durban man pays R495 for pies due to PnP pricing mistake, Mzansi can't deal with him making it public
Monwabisi Mbonda said:
“Last time a traffic officer stopped me and wanted a bribe, he told me to put R200 in the car boot so no one can see and go. I put in a lousy R1 and ran as fast as I could to my car to escape. I don't have money to play. I can imagine the trauma he went through after seeing that R1. At least he can buy Nik-Naks.”
Hefsiba Kalayandeke Kalazyozyo Chabalanda said:
“I don’t support this at all, but if you are not wrong at anyhow you don't have to pay a bribe... There's always 2 sides of the story and we only heard your side.”
Kat Smallk Mohotlheng said:
“There's always the corrupted. Don't act like a saint here. You could've argued while filming the officer so you've failed to do so showing that you are on the wrong side and chose to resolve it in cash.”
Chris Fey said:
“You need to write down the serial numbers on those notes. Then hand them to the cop and call the corruption unit. He will have to explain how you know the serial numbers in his possession.”
