POTCHEFSTROOM: 30 March 2022 - The North West provincial police management is shocked by allegations circulating on various social media platforms about a woman alleging that she was raped by police in Bokone village, Mahikeng.

Preliminary investigation regarding the allegations revealed that at this stage, no case of rape has been registered at one of the police stations in greater Mahikeng. The alleged victim and / or her relatives are urged to come forth to lay a charge so that investigation can be instituted.

Police management would like to reiterate that unbecoming conduct and criminal activities cannot be condoned in the ranks of the South African Police Service (SAPS) and that those who commit crime must face the full might of the law.
