sapsThe Mercury reports that twelve police officers, who had all been working at border posts in northern KwaZulu-Natal (KZN), have all been dismissed for engaging in “corrupt activities”.  

KZN Acting Provincial Commissioner Major General Bheki Langa said in a statement that the police officers were dismissed following an internal investigation into corrupt activities at the Kosi Bay and Golela Border Posts.  Langa commended the role played by the community from the Umkhanyakude area for raising the alarm and reporting the corrupt police officers.  He explained that President Jacob Zuma had visited the area recently to listen to the concerns of the community.  A project was established to deal with the challenges identified.  “The project yielded positive results as a number of arrests were made and stolen vehicles were also recovered.  It also emerged during these operations that some police officers at border post were corrupt, which resulted in an undercover operation being instituted.  These 12 officers were nabbed for corruption and were charged criminally and internally,” said Langa.
