Nyanga Police Station Commander Brigadier Vuyisile Ncata has urged communities to report all cases of corruption and extortion to arrest the perpetrators, this comes after a 37 year old constable was arrested for corruption and extortion.

It is alleged that on 01 June 2015 the member attended to a complaint of Domestic Violence.

The suspect was not arrested, but instead the Police member told the suspect he will sort out the matter for him and demanded money as payment.

Captain FC Van Wyk said The Police officer was allegedly paid R500 on the same day. On 08 June 2015 the Police Officer allegedly arrested the suspect but did not document his particulars in the SAPS registers, and instead demanded R2000 from the suspect where-after he was released.

Van Wyk added that the suspect did not have the full amount requested and offered to pay the money on a later date, but instead reported the matter to the DPCI.

“A trap was set for the Police Officer to meet him in at the Police Station, yesterday where the cash would be handed over to him. The 37-year-old Police Officer was immediately arrested and is in custody.” Van Wyk said.

He will appear in court next week.
