hawksNews24 reports that a sting operation by the Hawks' Serious Corruption Investigation unit, in collaboration with Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) and Special Investigating Unit, culminated in the closing down of a private vehicle testing station in Lephalale on Monday.  

Seven officials were arrested.  Provincial Hawks spokesperson Captain Matimba Maluleke said five vehicle examiners and two clerks aged between 26 and 57 allegedly used the identity particulars of unsuspecting victims to issue roadworthy certificates for vehicles that were never brought to the testing station for compulsory tests.  Last week, four people at a vehicle testing station in Musina, Limpopo were arrested for fraud and corruption.  In a similar operation last month, four people – also from Musina – were nabbed at the Thusalushaka Testing Station.
