EWN reporter, Thando Kubheka says Manana was snuck in through the back entrance of the court premises. He was then taken into a secluded area by court officials.

It is not clear what's been discussed but he's been in a meeting with court officials for about an hour.

Since the incident happened on Sunday, civil society groups have been calling for Manana to be fired.

Kubheka says a group of women wearing T-shirts with the words, "Not in my Name" have been protesting outside court.
