JOHANNESBURG - 17 JANUARY 2013 17:00 Two Sandton cops charged with corruption Alex Eliseev | one hour ago SANDTON - Gauteng police on Thursday confirmed that two Sandton officers were arrested for corruption after allegedly extorting money from a motorist. The officers appeared in the Randburg Magistrate's Court earlier in the day. They were released on R3,000 bail each. Last week, a constable from the same station died when an Audi R8 car crashed on Oxford Road in Rosebank. This after police pulled over the vehicle in Sandton. The cop had allegedly gotten inside the car while the driver sped away. The man then crashed into a tree in Rosebank. Police spokesperson Lungelo Dlamini said the two constables work in visible policing and pulled over a woman in Sandton last week Sunday. “They pulled over a motorist who was accused of having drugs. They took the driver’s licence and the motorist was later forced to withdraw R1,000 from an ATM.” The officers, Linda Mlambo and Mahlang Shaku, were charged with corruption and will return to court in February. Dlamini declined to comment on the similarities between this case and the one involving the Audi R8, saying there is no link between them. Police claimed officers had found dagga inside the supercar, but this has been met with scepticism. EYE WITNESS NEWS - - - COMMENTS BY SONNY - - Same police station, same circumstances...? So it is not as isolated as we are lead to believe.
