The man who was convicted of assaulting the president after he spilled his drink near Jacob Zuma on Thursday said he was still shocked by the ruling and waiting to hear his sentence in September.
Alberton betting agent Daryl Peense was at the Durban July last year when his whiskey and water spilled near the president.
Although the drink did not touch Zuma, the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate's Court found that Peense had acted intentionally.
Peense said the case against him has ruined his life.
“[It has]… financially ruined me, ruined my businesses and it is going to get worse by the look of things,” he said.
