After passing the checking desk before passport control for my flight back to Malaysia, KL, I was stopped and harassed by two security guards demanding R500 for my over-sized hand luggage although approved by the airline staff. To avoid conflict as I was travelling with my 14month old son. I handed over the cash.
After paying, money was exchanged between guards. Whilst waiting in the passport queue i witnessed at least 5 more individuals been bullied into payments. and one man was pulled from the queue and forced to pay in order to be released.
This is a prime spot as you are caught between gates and unable to report the crime unless you have enough time to find an un-corrupt officer.
This was very embarrassing as a South African travelling with foreigners
