pscCaxton Network News reports that the Public Service Commission (PSC) has praised officials from SA Revenue Service (SARS) and the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) who refused to take a bribe at the Beitbridge port of entry.

The officials were offered R50,000, which was increased to R200,000, after a truck loaded with 614 boxes of semi-manufactured tobacco to the value of R6m entered SA via Beitbridge port of entry. “These upright officials demonstrated honesty and bravery as well as an important trait of serving with integrity and ethical conduct, something that must be applauded. Their ethical conduct also augurs well towards the professionalisation of the public service and should serve as a lesson to all public servants to give their selfless service to the people of this country,” said the PSC in a statement. The Musina Regional Court recently sentenced Nthapeleng Adler Munyai, a former Pamdozi Cargo International CC clearing agent, and Tsumbedzo Priscilla Nemangani Mashito, who used to work as a SARS customs external verification officer, to effective 15-year direct imprisonment terms on counts of fraud, forgery, and two counts of corruption.
