Johannesburg - Metro police in Johannesburg have denied that officers crashed into an MP's car and insulted her, The New Age reported on Wednesday.

A Metro police spokeswoman told the newspaper that arts and culture portfolio committee chairwoman Thandile Babalwa Sunduza lied bout the incident.


The spokesman, the New Age reported, said police were conducting a stop/search operation at the junction of Grayston Drive and Katherine Street in Sandton, near the Gautrain station, on Friday when they saw Sunduza.

"Sunduza was busy on her cellphone. When they stopped her she just drove away," the police told the newspaper. A mobile police officer chased and caught Sunduza and blocked her car with his bakkie. She tried to drive away and "touched the corner of the bakkie, scratching her car".

"She was charged for using a cellphone while driving," she said.

Sunduza denied the police's version of the incident and said metro police could get her cellphone records to see if she was talking on the phone. She told the newspaper she thought she was being hijacked when metro police confronted her.


After telling them she would park her car to avoid blocking traffic, Sunduza reportedly said she "heard a big bang" and realised a metro vehicle had crashed into her car.

"It was traumatic... the female officers were calling me "isifebe" ["whore"] and a dog," she said.

She also claimed she was threatened with arrest for talking on her cellphone while driving but claimed both her cellphones were in the car boot at the time. - Sapa
