Selfie-taking police victim Esethu Mcinjana lands a job but still seeks answers

After her arrest in Cape Town under questionable circumstances, 23-year-old Esethu Mcinjana finally gets the job she had hoped to land.

Mcinjana was arrested and searched on the Sea Point beachfront on 19 May while waiting for an interview at a hotel in that area.

The policewoman accused her of being a car thief after she searched her and found a gate remote control which she said was a car lock jamming device.

Nickolaus Bauer on the Xolani Gwala Show speaks to EWN reporter Monique Mortlock who has been following the story.

Mcinjana says although she is happy about the job, she is still hurting over what happened last week and she still wants answers on why those two officers approached her specifically.
