A police officer based at Bulawayo Central Police Station faces disciplinary action for allegedly taking a picture of a ticket, which has gone viral on social media platforms, issued to Highlanders coach Erol Akbay recently for a traffic offence.
Responding to the incident a senior police officer who spoke to The Chronicle said that the police officer’s behaviour was unacceptable and as such warrants disciplinary action. Highlanders coach, Erol Akbay confirmed being ticketed for a traffic offence last week. He however denied crossing a red robot saying,
Although I never went through a red robot, the police officer still issued me with the $20 ticket and I wonder why he took a picture of it; probably to show it to other guys or even the media that he arrested a Highlanders coach, but I am not giving that much thought. I never asked him why he was taking pictures of the ticket.
