POTCHEFSTROOM: 14 August 2021 – The Provincial Commissioner of North West, Lieutenant General Sello Kwena welcomed the arrest and subsequent appearance of Sergeant Martin Noge (41) in the Brits Magistrates’ Court on Friday, 13 August 2021, on charges of corruption and defeating the ends of justice.

Noge was arrested in Malateng Section, Jericho village outside Brits by the Provincial Anti-Corruption Investigation Unit (ACIU) on Thursday afternoon, 12 August 2021. It is alleged that the accused called a man in connection with a culpable homicide case, which he (Noge) was investigating and demanded money. However, the law abiding citizen reported the matter to the police. Subsequent to the demand, the accused allegedly went to the man’s place, but was apprehended soon after collecting R3000.00. Upon appearance in court, Noge was granted R3000.00 bail and the case was postponed until Tuesday, 28 September 2021.

Lieutenant General Sello Kwena commended the Anti-Corruption Investigation Unit members for collaborating with a member of the community in ensuring that the accused is arrested. He emphasised that the Service does not have a place for corrupt and dishonest employees and that those who commit acts of criminality will be dealt with effectively including through internal processes.
