SAPS Brig to constable Angelique Kok: 'you think you are special because ... you are white": SAPS dog-unit constable Angelique Kok was then dropped alone 'amongst a bunch of drunken men and prostitutes' by the allegedly 'black racist' female SAPS brigadier Vuyokazi Ndebele in Sunnyside on Friday-night, warned Afriforum investigator Nantes Kelder.
Afriforum was contacted after constable Angelique Kok, an Afrikaner police woman, was allegedly cursed by Brig Ndebele for 'not driving with her blue lights on' when they were on patrol Friday-night in Sunnyside, Pretoria. Ndebele was riding a police car next to hers and yelled out the window. The young female constable then stopped her vehicle and climbed out - gesturing to Mrs Ndebele to repeat her comments because she couldn't hear them properly while driving. Ndebele was in another car with a police-colonel. Ndebele then walked over to constable Kok's car, took the keys from the police vehicle's ignition, and climbed back into her own car with the colonel. Constable Kok then went to Brig Ndebele's vehicle asking for her keys back as her police-dog was not allowed to remain alone in the vehicle. Ndebele responded by telling Kok "'don't you salute the colonel?" Kok responded by saying that she had 'not seen the colonel' (it was nighttime) but then Mrs Ndebele snarled at the young Afrikaner police officer: "You think you are special because of your skin colour, because you are white'. W/O Kok's police car was then driven away from the site by someone else. This occurred at a notorious prostitution spot: on the corner of Schoeman- and Wessel Street in Sunnyside. The young police constable was left standing alone without any transportation or any other collegues. She was carrying only her police-revolver. Kelder said: "Police management claims to be so worried because so many police-officers are being murdered, but then an SAPS-brigadier leaves a young female constable, armed only with her service pistol, alone amongst a bunch of drunk men and prostitutes." W/o Kok had to contact a friend to come and fetch her. She was so traumatised by the racial abuse and the entire experience that she's undergoing psychiatric counselling. W/o Kok, accompanied by Mr Kelder, placed a charge of crimen injuria at the Lyttelton-police station in Centurion. This was confirmed by SAPS capt Pinky Tsinyane, provincial police spokesman. 'The police are aware of the case. Once the investigation is complete, the dossier will be referred to the directorate of public prosecutions for a decision whether the case will be prosecuted in the courts, or not,' Tsinyane said.
