Bribery and corruption has been in Ghana system for ages. The police service has made obvious about the fact the they take bribes and it's not news to see a police officer taking bribe on the roads.
There has been massive reactions about a police officer who took a bribe of Gh¢200 cedis which she describe as a commitment fee from a driver and end up living her iphone12 pro in the passenger seat.
The officer whose name has been hidden for some reasons has revealed that, what she didn't take Bribe but a commitment fee. Because the man was walking without a driving license that's why she took the Gh¢200. She therefore begs the driver to return the phone because it cost about Gh¢10000.
Following the letter, the Policewoman has placed several calls apologizing for her actions saying it was a commitment fee and that she is willing to return the money for her phone.
In my opinion, it is wrong for police officer to accept a any money from a driver for infringement of the rules. When drivers offend the laws, they must be also made to face the accompanying punishment. The driver and the officer must not be left to go free.
