npaEWN reports that Mduduzi Manana's former domestic worker is to apparently submit a fresh affidavit this week detailing how the ANC member of parliament allegedly assaulted her.  

Christine Wiro opened a case against Manana at the Douglasdale Police Station two months ago, accusing the MP of pushing her down the stairs and threatening to deport her to Zimbabwe.  He apparently offered her R100,000 to withdraw the matter.  Manana has denied the claims and has since opened a criminal case against Wiro for allegedly trying to extort money out of him.  According to the Commission for Gender Equality (CGE), which is supporting Wiro with legal advice, the police’s investigation into Manana’s assault case is nearing its end and, after Wiro has given police the new statement, the docket will be sent to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) for a decision.
