Three home affairs officials arrested for being corrupt

Three home affairs officials arrested for being corruptHawks have arrested three home affairs officials after allegedly demanding a R10,000 bribe from an undocumented foreigner in Jane Furse, Limpopo.

The trio, aged between 30 and 42, were arrested on Tuesday during a sting operation by the Hawks’ serious corruption investigation unit and home affairs’ counter-corruption team.

Hawks spokesperson Capt Matimba Maluleke said the officials are being charged for corruption.

“The suspects who include a Nebo home affairs control immigration officer and two Jane Furse home affairs immigration officers allegedly conducted a routine inspection at one of the foreign-owned shops and found an undocumented immigrant.”

“Instead of arresting him, the officials allegedly demanded a R10,000 gratification for his freedom. The amount was reportedly reduced to R4,000 and it was paid by the victim to the suspects,” said Maluleke.

When Hawks got the report on this matter, it immediately conducted an investigation that led to the arrests.

They trio are expected to appear in the Motetema magistrate’s court on Wednesday.
