Hell hath no fury like a cop assaulted.

I’m sure that some overzealous rookie cop will “baptise ” the inkosi with a few slaps just to remind him that in the Tonse dispensation, nobody is above the law; not even the President, let alone a chief.

It very pathetic for a senior chief to assult police officer who is also on dut. For he thought, assulting the officer will cause fear in the victim and fail to perform. It is high time that, we must respect our brothers and sisters who are in duty to protect the civilian. May the law work on him.
