It is alleged that complaints were received from motorists about law enforcement officers of Emalahleni Municipality who were demanding gratification for not giving traffic offenders fines after traffic violations. It is further alleged that every time when the suspects are on duty, they do the same thing.  An intelligent driven investigation was initiated in 2019, targeting the same perpetrators. In January 2020, an undercover operation was conducted by the team and the same suspects received gratification for not issuing traffic fines for traffic violations during the operation.
