Yusuf Abramjee has recently posted that the Tshwane Metro Police can be seen ‘stealing’ cigarettes from a shop owner in Booysens Pretoria. The shop owner insists that he received no receipt for the seizure and has since opened a case against the TMPD.
Video 1/2 WATCH these @TMPDSafety cops stealing cigarettes from a store in Booysens Pretoria. In another incident, @TMPDSafety cops last week stole fireworks and extorted money from a truck driver in Pretoria. @MbalulaFikile @TrafficRTMC @GP_CommSafety pic.twitter.com/d2iqDzhVff— Yusuf Abramjee (@Abramjee) December 30, 2019
Followers of the originating post were sceptical and assumed it could be illegal cigarettes but its been clarified that a case has been open against the department.
We will make attempts to contact the shop owner and verify more information when we have it.
