Statement on the alleged physical assault of women by Mduduzi Manana and his friends

Statement on the alleged physical assault of women by Mduduzi Manana and his friends

7 August 2017

The African National Congress (ANCWL) has noted the disturbing reports alleging that the Deputy Minister of Higher Education Cde Mduduzi Manana and his friends physically assaulted women at a Pub in the past weekend.

The ANCWL condemns violence against women and perpetrators must face the might of the law. Whilst we take into account the principles of innocent until proven guilty, the ANCWL is resolute in supporting the victims of violence and wishes to reiterate this position. Based on media reports, we are led to believe that a case has been reported to the police and we urge all witnesses to come foward to assist law enforcement agencies in resolving the matter.

All shall be equal before the law and we are hoping for a fair and just trial as no one is above the law. As we mark the 61st anniversary of the women`s month, society must unite against the scourge of violence against women and children. Women`s Rights are Human Rights.
