Police probe into assault claim against MP continues
NO extortion case has been opened yet by MP Mduduzi Manana against the woman who accused him of assaulting her when she was his domestic worker.
The former deputy minister of higher education and training had threatened to open a case of extortion this week after his former domestic worker Christine Wiro opened a case of intimidation‚ assault and crimen injuria against him.
Manana has denied the allegations and accused Wiro of trying to solicit a R100 000 bribe in order to drop the case. But later an audio file surfaced‚ allegedly of Manana’s voice begging Wiro to take a “consolation” and withdraw the case.
Wiro later withdrew the case, saying she feared for her life after Manana turned up at her house.
But the National Prosecuting Authority refused to withdraw the charges and instructed the police to investigate the matter regardless. – TimesLIVE
