THE days of being slay queens and seeing men and women in blue uniform partaking in social media challenges are now a thing of the past in South Africa.

A circular stamped for circulation on 3 January was sent on 24 December to the National Head of the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation and all police departments and divisions, signed by the national commissioner Khehla Sitole.

It said members were damaging the professional image of the SA Police Service (SAPS) posing in uniform on social media. It also instructed commanders to monitor social media platforms where certain members bring the SAPS into disrepute, as videos or pictures posted were of indecent content and distasteful. “In instances where members are recognised, commanders must immediately take disciplinary action.”

TikTok influencer, Metro cop Tiyani Siphamele was not worried, but said should the Metro Department apply the rules, he will entertain his followers in his ordinary clothes.
