BLOEMFONTEIN-Free State Police Commissioner Lieutenant General Baile Motswenyane has ordered an investigation into the case of a man seen in a video doing viral rounds on social media being transported in a dog cage by the police vehicle.
In the video, the man, who has been identified as Tshediso Paul Mohale, is handcuffed from behind and sitting in a dog cage placed at the back of a marked police bakkie.
Mohale is hunched over as he can hardly fit in this cage made up of two small partitions.
In the other compartment, there is a police dog barking viciously.
The incident is believed to have taken place in 2019 in Hennenman on the outskirts of Welkom.
It has been reported that Mohale was arrested by four police officers on November 2, 2019 for allegedly dealing in dagga.
The police are said to have raided his house without a search warrant.
It is also alleged that one of the police officers made racial slurs at Mohale before detaining him in the dog cage.
