Policeman under investigation for ‘abuse’ of government vehicle


A police officer is being investigated after a video spread like wildfire on social media platforms which apparently shows him abusing a government vehicle while on duty.

In the video, the police officer can be seen using his official vehicle to make personal purchases.

According to Brig. Athlenda Mathe, police spokesperson, has ordered an investigation into the incident and has since established that the officer in question is a sergeant stationed at the Durban port.

“The SAPS views such actions in a serious light and assures members of the public that resources such as state vehicles are there to ensure the optimal operation and functioning of the police service and to serve our communities.”

The investigation continues.
