JUG-SMASHER LUNGISA GUILTY OF ASSAULT
ANC Eastern Cape heavyweight Andile Lungisa has been found guilty of assault with the intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
Lungisa, who pleaded not guilty in the Port Elizabeth Magistrate’s Court, was accused of smashing a glass jug over the head of former member of the mayoral committee Rano Kayser, during a Nelson Mandela Bay council meeting in October 2016.
Among the evidence presented by prosecutor Wayne Ludick was a video which showed how Lungisa slammed the jug over Kayser’s head, before he fled and how Kayser fell backward and landed on the floor. The case has been postponed to May 9 and Lungisa’s bail has been extended.
