bright flash of the camera and even banging on the windows did not wake
two men police officers who were photographed sleeping in their patrol
van in Pretoria this week.
The two Sunnyside policemen now face dismissal after Eyewitness News brought the matter to the attention of police management.
A series of pictures taken on Sunday at around 2am show the men fast asleep inside a marked police vehicle.
Police say they fired a captain in Mabopane on Tuesday for the same offence, just hours before these pictures emerged.
On Sunday, the constables had parked near a number of popular drinking spots. EWN understands that a captain who arrived on the scene attempted to excuse their behaviour, saying they had worked long hours.
The police's Neville Malila said this would not be tolerated.
He said management would provide details of their investigation on Wednesday.Eyewitness News
