Their appearance spirals from an incident that led to their arrest today wherein they stopped a taxi and instead of giving the driver a traffic fine after finding fault, they allegedly demanded cash to the amount of R200 which was then allegedly paid in cash to the two officers.
The taxi driver then reported the matter to the police and on approaching the two suspects at the same spot where the incident had taken place, the suspects allegedly handed back the R200 back to the complainant allegedly in front of the police and were arrested on the spot.
