Johannesburg - Mpumalanga's head of community safety appeared in the Kempton Park Magistrate's Court on Monday on charges of drunk driving and impersonating a police officer, Gauteng police said.

Thulani Sibuyi was granted R1 000 bail after appearing in court, said Lieutenant Colonel Katlego Mogale.

"He allegedly crashed into another vehicle, and when the police came he allegedly put on his siren and told them he was a police officer, said Mogale.

Democratic Alliance spokesperson Anthony Benadie has called on Mpumalanga MEC Vusi Shongwe to act against Sibuyi.

"As the head of the provincial task team implemented to fight drunk driving in the province, the DA believes Sibuyi must lead by example," said Benadie.

The Mpumalanga department of community safety could not be reached for comment.
