Two Eastern Cape provincial traffic officers, a driving school instructor and a speaker of Municipality have been arrested for alleged corruption by the Hawks task team deployed to investigate allegations of corruption in Eastern Cape municipalities.
The two traffic officials from Maletswai Municipality in Aliwal North and the school instructor from the same area were arrested for allegedly selling learner and driver’s licenses. The three suspects are suspected to have raked in thousands of rands and investigations are ongoing.
Meanwhile, the same team also pounced on a senior official at the Walter Sisulu Municipality for fraud and corruption. The suspect allegedly submitted subsistence and travelling claims using vehicle details of an unsuspecting member of the public. The four suspects are expected to apply for bail at the Aliwal Magistrate Court on Friday
