JOHANNESBURG SOUTH AFRICA – Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula has warned road traffic law enforcement officers that taking bribes contributes to the carnage on the country’s roads.
OgeneAfrican reports that Mbalula was addressing senior traffic law managers during the launch of transport month along the N3 just outside Heidelburg on Saturday.
“We don’t take bribes. No more coldrink. Because you take coldrink, you will be allowing that person to kill your mother, your sister, your wife, your girlfriend, your boyfriend – because of a coldrink.”
At the same time, President Cyril Ramaphosa has signed into law a bill that could potentially result in motorists disobeying the rules of the road losing their driver’s licenses.
Mbalula has called on officers to do their job without any favour.
