Two police constables from Nyanga were arrested for stealing liquor after a shebeen raid.

Nyanga police spokesperson Ntomboxolo Sitshitshi, says the officials allegedly raided a shebeen in Samora Machel and then drove to the police station and loaded the confiscated alcohol into their private cars.

Members of the community reported the incident and they were arrested.

The men will appear in the Philippi Magistrate's Court today.

Meanwhile, the Inkatha Freedom Party has condemned the acts of police during hostel raids in Soweto.

IFP spokesperson Vincent Shange, says the IFP strongly believes that the community has to protect the South African Police Service, but it is also their duty to protect them.

The IFP has slammed the killing of the two police officers at the Mzimhlophe hostel on Sunday, but say the police are now harassing the hostel residents and people are being injured and admitted to hospitals.
