Gauteng cops warned against helping parties

2014-05-04 10:04
(AFP)
Johannesburg - Gauteng traffic cops have been warned that they will be in hot water if they don’t stop using state resources to promote political parties ahead of Wednesday’s elections.

According to the Sunday Times, the warning, which was emailed to all staff last week, comes after two traffic officers, who were on duty, were caught ferrying and distributing ANC T-shirts at an election campaign event in Ekurhuleni recently.

The probe was launched after journalists saw a patrol car ferrying the T-shirts to the Duduza event.

After photographing officials handing out the T-shirts, members of President Jacob Zuma’s protection unit grabbed the journalist’s phone and deleted the pictures.

It is alleged that uniformed traffic officers also distributed T-shirts to people attending the rally.
