In a recent misconduct case, a City of Johannesburg inspector has been fined for corruption, totalling R10,000.

As per TimesLIVE, Hlengani Voster Maluleke, aged 41, received his sentence from the Brixton magistrate’s court earlier this month, with an effective fine of R10,000. The court imposed a fine of R20,000, half suspended for five or four years of imprisonment.

According to Hawks spokesperson Colonel Philani Nkwalase, Maluleke had inspected the Brixton Shoprite in July of the previous year. During his inspection, he identified certain irregularities in the store’s operations and issued a fine of R5,000. However, two days later, he returned to the store and demanded R1,000 to waive the penalty.

The incident was promptly reported to the Hawks, leading to an investigation that resulted in Maluleke’s arrest when he arrived to collect the requested cash. The authorities took swift action to address the corrupt behaviour exhibited by the City of Johannesburg environmental inspector.
