Johannesburg - A police captain appeared in the Lebowakgomo Magistrate's Court on Monday for alleged corruption, fraud and theft, Limpopo police said.

Captain Mavis Maphula Tlooke was granted R500 bail and the matter was postponed to 24 May, so that a date could be assigned in the regional court.

"Tlooke was arrested [last week] after she allegedly promised a police reservist at the Lebowakgomo police station, that she will ensure permanent employment for him in the [police]," said police spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi.

"[This was] despite him not completing the psychometric testing successfully."

Tlooke allegedly demanded R10 000 and it was agreed that the reservist constable could make the payment in several instalments.

When the reservist constable was not included on the lists of two separate intakes to the police training centre in Pretoria, he contacted police.

The matter was investigated by the organised crime unit until Tlooke's arrest at her home last week.
