June 17, 2023 - There is a story and accompanying photograph of a Police officer circulating on various social media platforms claiming that Constable Danny Singoyi based at Paramilitary Battalion had applied for the current recruitment in the Defence Force with his name appearing multiple times on the shortlisted candidates.
We would like to clarify and correct this misinformation.
Our officer has been serving deligently in the Police Service and never participated in the ongoing recruitment process of the Defence Force as alleged.
Furthermore, the National Registration Card number seen in the article does not belong to Constable Singoyi.
The author of the article has been contacted and they have expressed their sincere apologies to us as well as to Constable Singoyi for their error.
We appreciate their cooperation in rectifying this situation.
In light of this incident, we kindly request media houses especially social media users to exercise caution and verify the accuracy of information before publishing.
