A video has emerged on social media of a Saps employee at Mamelodi East Police Station in Pretoria – originally thought to be a local street vendor – certifying documents while wearing what appears to be a gown-like dress, apron and slippers.

Following public backlash police spokesperson Brigadier Mathapelo Peters denies allegations the woman is a street vendor, saying she’s a Saps employee “authorised to certify documents”. She also confirms the woman’s dress was inappropriate and not condoned by Saps.

Gauteng provincial commissioner of police Lieutenant General Deliwe de Lange says improving professionalism is part of their efforts to “improving service delivery levels at all police stations”.

“This is the context within which we remain purposeful in enhancing all front-line service delivery points towards regaining public confidence and strengthening relations between the police and the public.”
