Mduduzi Manana Assault Case continues

JOHANNESBURG – The former deputy minister of Higher Education Mduduzi Manana who faces two counts of assault is expected to appear in the Randburg Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday.
Manana who recently resigned from his post as the deputy minister of Higher Education was charged for assaulting two women with intent to cause grievous bodily harm at a popular night club in Fourways, Johannesburg, in August.
It is understood that Manana was involved in a heated argument with the women about a person who should succeed President Jacob Zuma in December.
Witnesses say that in what seemed to be a friendly argument turned violent as Manana rose to his feet to assault the women.
Manana admitted to the incident but defended by saying that the women called him gay and couldn’t hold his anger.
The incident was caught on camera and the bruises of the women went viral on various social media channels.
The former deputy minister at his previous court appearance was granted R5,000 bail but his case is set to continue.
Manana remains an ANC MP regardless of the intense pressure he is receiving from rights groups and some of his party members.
DA members said that they will picket outside the court and ensure that justice is served accordingly.
