The Botswana Police Service has issued a warning to the inventor(s) of a fake media release circulating on social media. The document claims that there will be a P 500 reward for someone who reports anyone driving a motor vehicle without a drivers’ license.

Asked about the authenticity of the media release, BPS deputy public relations officer, senior superintendent, Near Bagali, vowed that action would be taken against the inventor(s) of the fake document.
