A Ficksburg truck driver was totally bemused when he received a traffic fine for “operating a motor vehicle without a fuel tank”.

Japie Setosmi, 32, was on his way from Ficksburg to Harrismith at about 07:25 on December 12 when he was pulled over by traffic officials on the R26.

One of the cops fined him for a “smooth tyre” and claimed he “operated a motor vehicle without a fuel tank”

Setosmi was flabbergasted about the weird “violation”.

A laughing Setosmi said on Tuesday he didn’t know what the woman was thinking when she wrote out the R600 fine.

One thing is for sure though, he won’t be paying the fine.

“I was too surprised [about the fine] to ask her to explain and just took it and drove off. In any case, there is nothing wrong with the truck.

According to Setosmi his employer also found the whole incident amusing and told him to ignore the fine.

The presidency says President Jacob Zuma is concerned about the vacuum at the SABC that has been created by the absence of a board.

The last board member Mbulaheni Maguvhe resigned earlier this week.

This has paved way for an Interim Board to be recommended by the National Assembly, before Zuma can make the final appointments.

Presidency spokesperson Bongani Ngqulunga explains, “Everybody is concerned including the president himself. The SABC is a very important institution in our society. As we have said before, all state owned entities including the SABC have to be functional, therefore the president is concerned. And we are  pleased that the National Assembly, especially the speaker yesterday,- and what she said, she realised the urgency  of the matter  that the matter should be resolved as soon as possible  in terms of  appointing the interim board.”

Earlier Zuma says he will await recommendations by the National Assembly on an interim board for the SABC before taking a final decision.

Die jongste klopjag is deur lede van die misdaadintelligensie-eenheid, speurtakke, misdaad-voorkomingseenheid, provinsiale spoorsnyeenheid, die geweld-, kinderbeskerming- en seksuele mis-drywe-eenheid, asook die taktiese reaksie-eenheid uitgevoer.

Altesame 68 verdagtes tussen die ouderdom van 19 en 47 is tydens die klopjagte in hegtenis geneem. Die verdagtes is onder meer aangekla van gewapende roof, voertuigkaping, huis-braak, diefstal, die besit van ongelisensieerde vuurwa-pens en die besit van dagga.

“Hierdie soort klopjagte sal dwarsdeur die feesseisoen duur en aanhou tot in die nuwe jaar. Inwoners moet aanhou om wenke oor verdagte optredes aan die polisie deur te gee,” het Ngoepe gesê. Die verdagtes sal in hul onderskeie distrikte in die hofwe verskyn.
