Two alleged corrupt police officers, Takalani Carlos Mokwena and Masiakwala Masilo David have appeared in Tiyani Magistrates’ Court, for a bail hearing on one count of corruption.
The two suspects’ police officers are attached to the Sekgosese police station in Limpopo. They allegedly demanded a bribe of R15 000 from a complainant under the pretence that there was a case that was opened against him by his girlfriend.

The complainant gave them R10 000, and the suspects then further demanded the outstanding amount of R5000.
The complainant then reported the matter to the police. This led to suspects arrested in possession of R1000 after the trap was set.
During their bail application, the state opposed it, and it was denied. The matter is adjourned to 24 March 2023, for further investigations, and the suspects will remain in custody.
