It couldn’t be more unfortunate: A corrupt traffic policeman from Gauteng suffered a major disaster on Tuesday after he was arrested for trying to seek bribes of R100. He also managed to eliminate the middleman after making his indecent suggestion to an undercover officer. In fact, there was only one way this transaction could end.
In an ironic twist of fate, the officer stopped the undercover agent on the N4 on June 8th. After he approached the driver, he then made it clear that the car driver in question could “free himself” from the situation. The price wasn’t exactly high, but the act itself showed a gross abuse of power.

However, this power dynamic was immediately turned on its head when the secret police officer revealed his identity. Little time was wasted handcuffing the suspect and he was taken to a nearby police station for investigation.
“A 35-year-old inspector from the Gauteng Traffic Police arrested for bribery and corruption. He stopped an undercover agent on the N4 today – allegedly demanding a R100 bribe. He was then handcuffed at the scene of the crime and is being held at the Boschkop police station. ”
