The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

THE STATE yes­ter­day called for the con­vic­tion of a “quick­tem­pered” sales­man on a charge of as­sault­ing a black do­mes­tic worker. An­dré van Deventer ap­peared in the Cape Town Dis­trict Court be­fore mag­is­trate Alta le Roux, who said she would de­liver judg­ment on Novem­ber 28. The case is a se­quel to an in­ci­dent in June last year in which Van Deventer al­legedly grabbed do­mes­tic worker No­ma­somi Glo­ria Kente dur­ing a heated ar­gu­ment. Van Deventer has pleaded guilty to a charge of crimen in­juria for call­ing her a “k*****” dur­ing the ar­gu­ment. He de­nies as­sault­ing her. Kente was work­ing for Mariechen Pien­aar, Van Deventer’s girl­friend at the time. Kente lived in. The ar­gu­ment oc­curred when she asked Van Deventer to look after Pien­aar’s baby while she had a shower. – Sapa
