JOHANNESBURG - The Democratic Alliance (DA) says it intends reporting the deputy higher education minister to the Commission for Gender Equality following a Sunday Times report that he has verbally abused and belittled his staff.

Former employees claim Mduduzi Manana has a history of temper tantrums and abusing his power.

The DA’s Marshallé Frederiks says the party will ask the commission to make recommendations to Parliament and the Human Rights Commission on what steps to take against Manana.

“The DA is appalled by the recent reports that Manana allegedly mistreated his former secretary as well as other female employees in his department. The DA will now report these allegations and ask the commission to make recommendations to Parliament as well as the Human Rights Commission.”

Manana was granted bail of R5000 in connection with his recent assault case in Johannesburg.

He admitted to assaulting Mandisa Duma at a Fourways nightclub last weekend after she apparently called him gay.

A former employee in Manana’s office claims he has a long history of aggression and gross abuse of his staff which stretches back at least five years.

LISTEN: ‘We don’t believe Mduduzi Manana should be fired’
