A driving licence applicant is facing charges of bribery and corruption after trying to convince a City of Cape Town official to help him get his licence.

I am very proud of the examiner for the way he handled this case,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, Alderman JP Smith. Continue reading
