National Police Commissioner Riah Phiyega has warned that people who are considering joining the police force through illegal means. 

These as eighteen people have been arrested in the police for recruitment fraud and corruption. 

Commissioner said over 5 000 entry level posts will be advertised soon and urged people to not ruin their future by either offering or accepting bribes.

Police Spokesperson Lieutenant General Solomon Makgale said eight of the eighteen people arrested were from the Soweto police station.

Makgale said the arrests also include the Benoni Cluster Commander, Brigadier Ndebeni, on charges of fraud and corruption after she allegedly used her position as chairperson of a selection panel to replace deserving candidate with an undeserving one.

Makgale said her case will be heard again on 19 January 2015 in the Soweto Regional court. The SAPS employees are also facing disciplinary charges.

Makgale said already, Lieutenant Colonel Myando was found guilty and dismissed last week, which highlights the seriousness with which the SAPS management views its members being involved in corrupt activities.

Makgale said Myando, as well as the other accused, will continue to answer to criminal charges. In the meantime, Moletje and her two co-accused are likely to face charges of fraud and corruption, while the two men are also likely to face additional charges of impersonating police officers.

“They are expected to appear in the Pretoria Regional Court on Monday, 27 October 2014 Makgale added.
