Cops had sex while motorists nearly died
Two metro police officers caught in a "compromising position" are facing disciplinary action, the Ekhurhuleni metro police said on Wednesday.
"They did not find them in the sex act. They found them in a compromising position," said Chief Superintendent Wilfred Kgasago.
"They had ruffled clothing. They came to the conclusion based on that."
Kgasago said a community policing forum (CPF) member and ANC councillor walked in on the pair at the Benoni metro police offices - which are only open during office hours.
They were trying to help a businessman who had contacted the metro police in an emergency, but could not get through.
"This came to our knowledge. This is a very serious allegation," he said.
Statements were made by the councillor, the CPF member, the businessman and the officers involved.
The investigation was handed over to a unit within the metro police that deals with integrity and professional standards. It had interviewed everyone involved.
"Based on the information we have, these officers were not supposed to be in the offices. They were actually on duty," said Kgsago.
He said a recommendation had been made to the municipality's director of labour that they be found guilty of bringing the metro police into disrepute and neglecting their duty.
Kgasago said the outcome should be known in "a couple of weeks". - Sapa

If they don't do it in ambulances while people are dying, then they do it in Metro offices while people are drowning!
