Pretoria - A Tshwane municipal building inspector was arrested on Friday for allegedly soliciting a bribe, the Hawks said.

The Hawks worked with the Tshwane metro municipality to secure the arrest, which was made just after 3pm.

The inspector allegedly delayed authorising a certificate which a contractor, who was building subsidised housing, needed to be paid for the job, for a month.

He allegedly demanded the R5000 in exchange for issuing this authorisation.

The man would appear in the Pretoria Specialised Commercial Crime Court on Monday to face a charge of corruption.
