The Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) has expressed satisfaction with the recent court ruling that imposed a prison sentence on a provincial traffic officer in Limpopo for accepting a bribe from an undercover agent.

On Monday, October 2, 2023, Vincent Madiga, aged 53, was found guilty by the Mokopane Magistrate court of accepting a R200 bribe from an undercover anti-corruption agent representing the RTMC. The court sentenced Madiga to three years of direct imprisonment without the option of a fine.

The arrest took place during Operation Siyabangena, a joint operation conducted between the National Traffic Anti-Corruption Unit of the RTMC and the Hawks in 2018. The RTMC views this conviction as a strong message to others still involved in such crimes that crime does not pay.

Moreover, Madiga’s criminal record disqualifies him from working as a traffic officer, effectively removing a corrupt element from the ranks of the traffic officers. The RTMC emphasized this as a significant achievement in fighting corruption within their organization.

Operation “Siyabangena” has led to the arrest of a total of 13 traffic officers, all of whom are facing charges in various courts across the province. Some have already been sentenced and imprisoned for their offenses.
