A corrupt immigration official at the Beitbrigde border post was caught red handed taking brides before stamping passports.
In the video, the immigration officer was seen taking money from travellers desperate for their passports to be stamped. He quickly hid the money under his book before stamping the passports.
The camera looks like was it hidden in the room without the immigration officer knowing as it captures him taking bribes from many travellers.
This is what home affairs minister, Aaron Motsoaledi has been lamenting that some immigration officials are enabling the influx of undocumented immigrants in the country as they keep on taking bribes from them.
Even though the official was seen taking money from those who wanted their passports to be stamped, it is said that some without passports are also sneaked in after bribing the corrupt immigration officers who work hand in hand with transporters carrying those without proper documentation.
