The Hawks takedown operation resulted in the arrest of ten suspects aged between 29 and 54 at Malamulele and Mutale testing stations respectively for allegedly selling driving licences on Thursday.
Following a community outcry since 2017, the Hawks’ Serious Corruption Investigation team in collaboration with Road Traffic Management Cooperation Centre (RTMC), embarked on a project-driven investigation aimed at addressing allegations of corrupt activities at the testing stations in the province.
The Hawks’ investigation revealed that the driving licences were sold at a minimum of R8600.00 per applicant.
Limpopo hawks spokesperson, Captain Matimba Maluleke said the suspects who includes a senior licensing officer, three examiners, two clerks, cashier, instructor, general worker and a middleman are expected to appear in the Malamulele and Mutale Magistrate Courts respectively on Friday (today).
