2011-12-28 20:00

Johannesburg - A testing officer at the SA Bureau of Standards, accused of corruption, appeared in the Polokwane Magistrate's Court on Wednesday, police said.

Lieutenant Colonel Mohale Ramatseba said Tshepo Mnisi, 32, was granted R1 000 bail and was expected to appear again on February 15.

Mnisi was arrested by the Hawks in Limpopo on Friday. He allegedly demanded R15 000 from a businessman who wanted to certify that chairs, fitted onto a truck converted for game viewing, complied with the SABS.

Ramatseba said Mnisi called the businessman and told him his application had failed but if he paid him the money he would issue him with the certificate.

The businessman contacted the Hawks and Mnisi was arrested after allegedly accepting R12 000.

    Luckily he could not bribe the magistrate. Or i don't hope so but it just shows how sick the society is. Imagine this business man was corrupt and did not report the matter. The chairs broke and someone was killed and in court it was revealed that it conformed to the standards imposed by the SABS. I personally think this certificate was never denied but this idiot was opportunistic and he got caught. Well done to the business man for standing up what is right , we need you and all the others in the country that shares the same beliefs so that the corrupt will be eliminated in our country. You really deserve a medal Sir and your wife and kids can be very proud of you. To the Courts send him to prison for long with a real certificate confirming his incarceration.
