Mpumalanga cop in court for bribery
Johannesburg - A police officer appeared in the Nelspruit Magistrate's Court on Tuesday for allegedly seeking a bribe from a businesswoman, police said.
Warrant Officer Derrick Mogale was released on R2 000 bail, Hawks spokesperson McIntosh Polela said.
The matter was postponed to November 24 for further investigations.
Police set a trap and arrested Mogale earlier on Tuesday, shortly after he took R5 000 from a businesswoman.
"The woman alerted the police after Mogale allegedly threatened to arrest her by claiming she owed the SA Revenue Services R17m in unpaid taxes."
Mogale was attached to the directorate for priority crime investigation.
