Former deputy minister of higher education Mduduzi Manana gave an interview where he said he was remorseful for his abusive actions against two women in August.

“I am very remorseful, and do want justice to be served,” said Manana.

The sentencing of Manana’s co-accused was also postponed in another courtroom to November 16.

The matter will resume on Wednesday.

Manana pleaded guilty to two counts of assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm for hitting two women at a Cubana nightclub earlier this year.

The public uproar eventually led to him stepping down from his position as deputy minister.
