A National Traffic Police officer has landed in hot water after a video surfaced online showing him dancing while driving his motorcycle.
According to the Road Traffic Management Corporation, who shared the video on Twitter, the cop is facing disciplinary action after he took his hands off the steering wheel to dance.
The video was captioned:
"Immediate disciplinary action is being taken against our National Traffic Police member. Lack of discipline will not be tolerated. Traffic officers are expected to set a good example to other road users and not flout regulations."
Take a look at the video below:
While some slammed the officer for being "reckless", others defended him, adding he probably only stretched his arms.
Twitter user, @kello_daywalker, commented:
"Someone balance me... How is it lack of discipline? He used one of the modes tsa bike. It has a cruise control for a reason mos."
Another tweep, @k31t4_dub, added:
"For what exactly? Infringement or stretching in a rhythmic manner?"
Social media user, @Lizo_sm, wrote:
"We've had officer's direct traffic whilst dancing, they human too, he deserves to be happy at his work as you haters don't love to see people happy."

The enraged citizens slapped the man who tried to explain himself, without avail. The entire incident was caught on video and shared on Twitter by Yusuf Abramjee.
South Africans reacted to the video. Some said they should have hit him harder while others were glad the alleged thug got a hiding.
