A 43-year-old Accounts Manager at the City of Johannesburg is expected to appear before the Hillbrow Magistrates Court on Friday for corruption charges.
It is alleged that last month, the suspect demanded R10 000 bribe from the complainant to reduce his utility bill account from R400 000 to R313 000.
Further investigation revealed that the suspect demanded R27 000 more for reducing the utility bill again to R225 000.
The Johannesburg Serious Corruption Investigation team conducted a sting operation at City of Johannesburg’s offices in Braamfontein on Thursday.
The suspect who had R10 000 in cash, was arrested and he was charged for corruption.
