OR Tambo International Airport’s security department is tight-lipped following the surfacing of a video which seems to show their staff accepting a bribe.

The video in question, shows the exchange of money between a traveler and a security official.

Although, there are cash transactions that happen at various points at OR Tambo International, this particular transaction raises suspicion for various reasons.

The money is not exchanged in full view but is lodged between the pages of the passenger’s passport.

And this particular station doesn’t seem to be one that requires cash transactions. The OR Tambo Police Department told News24 that they could not comment on the incident until a police investigation has been done.

The department also said that corruption was unacceptable in any form or any attempt to justify it.
