Tshwane metro cops on go-slow

The officers are on a go-slow in protest against alleged corruption by senior members.

Tshwane metro police were on a go-slow on Monday, saying there is corruption in the department.

PRETORIA - Dozens of Tshwane Metro Police officers embarked on a go-slow on Monday in protest against alleged corruption by senior members.

The South African Municipal Workers' Union (Samwu) called on management to suspend top cops that were fingered in a Special Investigating Unit (SIU) probe.

Instead of patrolling the streets of the capital city, dozens of uniformed officers sat idle at their headquarters in Pretoria west.

It is understood they will continue their go-slow until management suspends senior officers implicated in corruption.

According to officers, members of their rank and file are immediately suspected for wrongdoing, which is not the case with management.

Tshwane metro police chief Steven Ngobeni told the employees he will consider their grievances, but asked that they go back to work.
