Five on duty police members were arrested for corruption at the Kensington police station lastnight.

The arrests came after a senior officer at the station set up a sting investigation that led to an operation carried out at the Kensington Police holding cells.

“It is alleged that the five members received liquor and cash in exchange to allow a certain person to visit one of the suspects,” says police spokesperson Bernadine Steyn.

The suspects are expected to appear in the Cape Town Magistrate’s court today on charges of fraud.

"Internal disciplinary steps that could lead to the members’ suspension have also been implemented. These kind of arrests are aimed at uprooting corruption in the police service," says Steyn.
