Senior traffic officers at the KwaZulu-Natal Road Traffic Inspectorate (RTI) on Monday spoke out about victimisation and the bullying of supervisors by “well-connected” junior officers.

On Saturday, Weekend Witness reported that the provincial RTI, which falls under the KZN transport department, is in a crisis due to poor management. According to a report tabled by the transport department before the provincial legislature’s transport portfolio committee, the provincial RTI cannot even provide its traffic officers with uniform.

The inspectorate cannot attend to some of the province’s road emergencies due to a shortage of vehicles while poor oversight has resulted in some traffic offices bunking work.
