Johannesburg – Four BBC commentators who allege they were forced to pay a bribe to a Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) officer must lodge a complaint so corruption can be rooted out, a JMPD official said.
JMPD spokesperson, Edna Mamonyane, told News24 officials were aware of the allegations but said no steps could be taken until the British commentators came forward to authorities. “They will have to lodge a complaint officially for us to investigate,” Mamonyane said.
Commentator Jonathan Agnew, in a series of tweets, claimed he was pulled over and asked to produce a licence. Agnew said he and fellow commentators Michael Vaughan, Henry Blofeld and Simon Mann had to dig deep in their pockets to pay off the policeman.
