Ke Dezember boss is a popular catchphrase in Mzansi over the festive season and it seems the local police officers refuse to miss out on the action.

Based on a recent controversial video, a group of police officers were allegedly working while under the influence.

The footage shows the cops in their police van with an empty bottle of alcohol on the inside.

One of the cops removed his uniform and seemed to be in an intoxicated state while sitting on the backseat.

Cause for concern is that the South African Police Service was arguably required just a few metres away following a fender bender.

The video was shared by South Africa Live via Facebook and Briefly.co.za observed that South Africans reacted in anger.

Paul Tsholofelo Wa Lerato cited the blase attitude of the cops:

"If such offences were taken seriously, all police officers would respect their jobs. These officers know they will get away with it. Corruption in Mzansi."

Joe Mtyida felt that no action would be taken against the officers:

"Who ever that works for the government knows that whatever he does he won't get fired, this police officers will be taken to rehab now at our expense. That's how it works with our government."

Deon Van Schalkwyk was visibly enraged:

"Why using a police vehicle to enjoy themselves???? WHAT THE HELL! That's totally wrong....... drinking and driving."

Skhumbuzo Magagula summed it up:

"Saps has collapsed. We are on our own."
