The video clip, allegedly shot at the Buccleuch police station in Johannesburg, has since gone viral. 

It show the officer on the phone at the front desk, while members of the public are waiting for assistance. 

Police have launched an internal probe into the officer's conduct. 


"Such conduct by any member of the SAPS is unbecoming and can never be condoned, as ours is first and foremost, to serve and to protect" says the police's Brigadier Mathapelo Peters.

The Acting Provincial Commissioner  Major General Napo has sanctioned an internal investigation into the conduct of the member, with immediate effect.

Police Minister Fikile Mbalula has also reacted to the video.
