South Africa bans cops from dancing on Tik Tok

The Government of the Republic of South Africa led by His Excellency Cyril Matamela Ramaphosa has  banned the police from sharing their videos dancing on Tik Tok.



A stamped statement is widely circulating on social media in which the members of SAPS are warned about circulating their videos dancing while on duty.

The statement said circulating such videos is damaging the professional image of the SA Police Service (SAPS).

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.
