JMPD’s new “Operation G-String” aims to raise funds for Mzansi
In a bid to address financial difficulties and underpaid traffic officers, Johannesburg’s Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD) has launched a controversial new plan called ‘Operation G-String.’ This plan involves using advanced speeding cameras to increase fines and supplement traffic officers’ incomes through cash fines as reported by The Citizen.
JMPD boss Thulani Khanyile said Victoria’s Secret commercial inspired him to use G-strings, which are similar to speed cameras in that they don’t require much coverage to be effective.
The department plans to invest heavily in new speeding cameras, and officers will be deployed to all roads with speed limits of 60-80 km/h.

The operation is expected to generate a 400% return on investment within the first month.
Despite its potential financial benefits, JMPD’s new plan has drawn criticism for legitimizing bribery and abandoning traffic control.
