CGEEWN reports that various women rights organisations have reached out to Mduduzi Manana's former domestic worker who has accused the ANC Member of Parliament of assault.  

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) is still considering whether a common assault case opened by Christine Wiro should head to court after she tried to withdraw the matter, apparently for fear of her life.  The Zimbabwean woman claims that Manana pushed her down the stairs at his Fourways home at the weekend and threatened to have her deported.  Manana has denied these allegations and in turn accused the Wiro family of trying to extort R100,000 out of him.  The Commission for Gender Equality's Jabu Baloyi said they met with Wiro on Wednesday and would be “monitoring the unfolding of this case”.  Meanwhile, labour federation Cosatu has offered Wiro safe accommodation as she is in fear for her life.
