Tshwane Community Safety Department head, Daniel Manganye criticized some metro police officers for intolerable behavior outside the city’s courts.

Manganye has reportedly ordered that no metro police officer may attend court in uniform or while on duty.

This follows an incident last week, where a Blue Bulls jersey was torn into pieces by officers outside the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court.

This incident took place during a court appearance by Bees Roux on a charge of killing a metro police officer.

Manganye has made his statement clear, and says his instruction is clear and simple.

He said those who want to attend court can do so in their personal capacity while off-duty.

The Democratic Alliance’s Karen Meyer said they completely support this move by the Manganye.
