Meanwhile, a 22-year-old Zimbabwean man has been arrested for posing as a traffic police officer to extort motorists in South Africa.

Tendai Goodman Chakabva reportedly wore a Metro Police uniform in Ekurhuleni and used his fake identity to demand bribes from drunk drivers, speeding motorists and those with expired papers.

He deviced the dubious plan when he realised how much of a menace South African drivers are on the road and figured this would be a lucrative opportunity to make money.

Local media reports that the suspect then set up a fake checkpoint on the road and began taking bribes from erring drivers.

The Zimbabwean managed to make some money for a while until one day, police got wind of his act and he was arrested.

Police spokesperson, Sello Maremane said personnel of the Gauteng traffic police were performing a routine roadside check when they observed a suspicious white Nissan NP 300 approaching them.

He was paraded at the Ekurhuleni metropolitan police station after the arrest.

“The reputation of hardworking law enforcement officers in the province is tarnished by these suspects, and we would like to urge the criminal justice system to impose a harsh sentence on them. The Gauteng traffic police would like to urge the criminal justice system to impose a harsh sentence on these suspects”, Maremane said.
