SA should reject Manana as a leader - activist group
Mduduzi Manana was granted R5,000 bail at the Randburg Magistrates Court where he appeared on two counts of assault.
JOHANNESBURG - The Not in My Name movement of men against women abuse says South Africans should reject deputy Higher Education Minister Mduduzi Manana as a leader.
Manana was granted R5,000 bail at the Randburg magistrates court on Thursday where he appeared on two counts of assault.
Manana admitted to assaulting Mandisa Duma for what he calls extreme provocation when she called him gay.
The movement's Themba Masongo says they are very disappointed with Manana.
“No matter what class of society they come from, we will no longer stand with the abusers. We will not stand for patriarchy or women abuse.”
Meanwhile, Police Minister Fikile Mbalula has ordered an investigation into whether Manana's bodyguards were with him during the assault.
“This matter is under investigation. This matter concerns me because the police that guards him reports to me. I need to know the answers.”
Mbalula has promised Manana will face the full might of the law, adding he won't be treated with kid gloves.
