Ak­bay traf­fic ticket goes vi­ral

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Sikhum­buzo Moyo Se­nior Sports Re­porter

A COP based at Bu­l­awayo Cen­tral Po­lice Sta­tion faces dis­ci­plinary ac­tion for al­legedly tak­ing a pic­ture of a ticket is­sued to High­landers’ Dutch coach Erol Ak­bay re­cently for a traf­fic of­fence.

The pic­ture of the ticket, which has gone vi­ral on so­cial me­dia plat­forms, ap­pears to have been taken be­fore it was plucked out of the main ticket book, rais­ing the ire of pro­vin­cial po­lice com­man­ders.

Ac­cord­ing to de­tails on the ticket, Ak­bay, also a qual­i­fied driv­ing in­struc­tor, went through a red ro­bot along Leopold Takawira Av­enue and was stopped by one Con­sta­ble Rwodzi (force num­ber shown) sta­tioned at Bu­l­awayo Cen­tral Po­lice Sta­tion.

“This is an un­ac­cept­able be­hav­iour from the po­lice of­fi­cer. These are the very peo­ple who re­lease sen­si­tive se­cu­rity mat­ters to the pub­lic, is­sues which would have been dis­cussed in­ter­nally and this calls for se­ri­ous ac­tion,” said a se­nior po­lice of­fi­cer.

Ak­bay con­firmed be­ing tick­eted for a traf­fic of­fence last week.

“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,” said Ak­bay.

The ticket is­sued to Ak­bay by the po­lice for beat­ing a ro­bot
