CAPE TOWN - The Hawks have arrested an acting traffic chief and a driving licence examiner in Ashton.

The pair was nabbed earlier this week and arrested on corruption charges.

The Western Cape Transport Department's Byron La Hoe says: "In a joint operation with our compliance monitoring unit, the Hawks arrested a driving licence examiner and an acting traffic chief on 17 August.

"This is a strong signal that we will act without fear or favour when there are allegations of corruption against the department's officials."
