#MduduziManana sentenced to 12 months or R100 000 fine

#MduduziManana sentenced to 12 months or R100 000 fine

Manana had been convicted of three counts of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm after pleading guilty to the charges.

A woman had accused him of kicking and punching her and two others at the exit of a nightclub in the early hours of August 6.

What allegedly triggered his attack on the women was a comment one made that labelled him "gay".

A video of the assault surfaced on social media and sparked widespread condemnation.

EFF supporters crowded around Mduduzi Manana's luxury government vehicle as he left the Randburg Magistrates Court on Monday.

"These three grown men assaulted one woman". Manana was filmed assaulting two woman and pleaded guilty to the offence.

Smith described this as a "barbaric act".

"Where is the punishment if Manana is fined?" She said Manana can easily fork out a fine of R100,000. Bill argued that Manana was referred to as an "isitabane" on the night of the attack, a derogatory term used to refer to someone as gay, and that the victims had conceded that alcohol had a role in the attack against them.

In passing the sentence, Magistrate Ramsamy Reddy lambasted Manana saying the degree of violence displayed by Manana in a public space was not becoming of a person of his stature.

He argued for a sentence of 12 months imprisonment, wholly suspended for five years. He'll have to do 500 hours of community service and enter an anger management programme, but he'll never serve time: His lawyer said that he could pay the R100,000 on Tuesday.
