A police officer condoning drinking and driving during the South African alcohol ban, no less, is no reason to laugh but it seems the app users couldn't help themselves from cracking jokes.
Some users on the other hand made up excuses for the officer, saying that perhaps it was not alcohol that was being poured into the glass.
"Can't be proven it was alcohol in there, anyway why record the poor guy while he let you off the hook with drunk driving."
While another, @Sbuchef, said that it was nothing new:
"Nothing new my friends."
This user @Ntatemokhena called for action to be taken against the pair.
"This is like breaking the law and take a video while doing it. Exposing the guy exposes them all. They must be dealt with accordingly."
