Somerset west woman faces crimen injuria charge for calling a traffic officer the k-word

She will face a charge of crimen injuria. 

A Somerset West woman has been arrested for allegedly calling a traffic officer the k-word, Western Cape provincial traffic chief Kenny Africa said on Saturday.

“A lady addressed one of my officers with the k-word,” said Africa.

He said he could not give more details as the matter is sub-judice, but she will face a charge of crimen injuria.

This comes at a time when Springbok lock Eben Etzebeth, is accused of being involved in an alleged racially motivated assault in Langebaan in August.

In the meantime, officers in the Western Cape had a busy day on Saturday with 1467 vehicles stopped for checks.

Six people were arrested for driving drunk, with one person in Vredenburg being three times over the legal limit.

Two people were arrested for reckless and negligent driving in Mossel Bay and Grabouw respectively, and one for possession of dagga in Mossel Bay.

Four drunk and disorderly pedestrians were also arrested in Oudtshoorn.
