effSowetanLive reports that the EFF chief whip in North West has been accused of assault by a junior staff member at the provincial legislature after an argument.  

Bunga Ntsangane, who is also EFF deputy provincial chairman, allegedly also threatened to "cut off" the woman's private parts during their heated argument.  The alleged assault took place on Thursday when Ntsangane demanded that the woman, who is an EFF administrator at the legislature, come to work early the following day.  The alleged assault happened after she demanded to know why she had to report for work earlier than the usual time.  She said she suffered bruises on her left arm, thighs and knee.  A police spokeswoman said a case of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm had been opened against Ntsangane.  Ntsangane, who was at the police station on Monday for questioning, denied assaulting the complainant.  He said he was also assaulted by the junior staff member.
