A married female police officer was together with with a male colleague officer caught in a long intimate session while on duty.
The officers were shot on video as while on duty guarding a prisoner being transported from a prison to a local hospital for a medical check up.
But while the suspect was being attended to in one of the wards at Leratong Hospital in Krugersdorp, west of Johannesburg, the on-duty correctional officer and police officer decided to engage in a bonking exercise that lasted for well over 15 minutes.
The male correctional services, officer from Krugersdorp Prison and Nina and a female police officer, were caught on video having sex in a hospital waiting room. Both officers are from Kagiso, near Krugersdorp, on the West Rand.
Sonwabo Mbananga, spokesperson for Correctional Services Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula, said the department rejected his immediate resignation and told him to serve a month’s notice – while on suspension – as required by the department’s regulations.
Mbananga said the officer could not just walk away and “we are hoping that we will have finalised our internal disciplinary processes within 30 days”.
The police minister said the officers have demeaned their departments and shamed their colleagues.
Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa has described as “embarrassing” and “immoral” the conduct of a male correctional officer and a female police officer caught on video having sex on duty.
Mthethwa yesterday commended the South African Police Force’s Gauteng leadership for swiftly dismissing the Kagiso police officer when they became aware of the video.
The correctional officer, also from Kagiso on Gauteng’s West Rand, handed in a 24-hour resignation notice.
“The footage we have seen is an embarrassment to the uniform and badge of the (police) and that of correctional services,” Mthethwa said.
“It is demeaning to the reputation of all law-abiding, disciplined and dedicated men and women in blue.”
Law enforcement officers were expected to conduct themselves in an exemplary, dignified and moral manner, he said.
“We have always advocated that for us to win the war on crime, we need committed officers who understand that to succeed in this job they must uphold letter of the Constitution.
“The fact that this immoral act was conducted during working hours, in a public institution and in full uniform, with the firearms totally neglected, leaves much to be desired.
“A police and correctional officer is supposed to keep watch of his or her firearm at all times,” Mthethwa said.
Correctional Services Commissioner Tom Moyane has on several occasions said he would not tolerate any form of misconduct by the prison warders.
“Correctional officials are entrusted with the responsibility to take care of offenders and exercise their positive influence on them, so that their offending behaviour can be corrected.
“Any officer suspected of misconduct will therefore be investigated and if reasonable grounds exist that there was wrongdoing, they will face the ultimate repercussions,” Moyane said in a statement. -Additional Reporting – Sowetan
