A video of metro police officials seemingly trying to arrest a woman made rounds on the internet. The numerous Tshwane Metro Police officials were at a petrol garage at Lyttleton in Pretoria on Tuesday at the time. In the video recording they were allegedly manhandling a woman driving a VW.
Yusuf Abramjee, a civil society activist, states that the lady was alone and didn’t want to stop her car in the dark, scared of fake cops. She then drove to a petrol station close by, where the police officials allegedly jostled her. “This woman was alone and didn’t want to pull over in the dark fearing fake cops. She drove to a nearby petrol station,” says Yusuf Abramjee. The woman can be seen getting out of her vehicle.
That’s when the metro police officials went towards her car, thus then taken to a Tshwane Metro Police Department minibus. She was taken by one female official and three male officials. The woman seemed to be a bit uneasy, thereby allegedly not allowing to get in the car. The woman also seemed to be calling for some assistance. One man tried to assist, however, he was kept away by one of the police officials.
The lady is then shoved to the ground by one of the police officials, thereby cuffing her and getting her in the vehicle. Senior Superintendent Isaac Mahamba, The Tshwane Metro Police spokesperson, acknowledged the event. Senior Superintendent Isaac Mahamba says, “We as the department are aware of the video and the incident that took place on the mentioned date and times and we can confirm that those members seen in the video are TMPD members.” The spokesperson says the internal investigation of the matter has reached its advance stage.
