handcuffsNews24 reports that three Gauteng traffic police officers were arrested on Friday in Midrand for allegedly soliciting and receiving a bribe.  

Apparently, the SA Police Service (SAPS) in Midrand got a tip-off that the officers had gone to a house and demanded a bribe.  The officers were subsequently arrested at the house where they were allegedly collecting the remainder of the bribe money they had demanded.  Gauteng MEC for Community Safety Faith Mazibuko praised the Midrand SAPS for the arrest of the three officers, who are attached to the Special Law Enforcement Unit.  The department is expected to serve the officers with suspension letters, pending an investigation into the case.
