Manana faces two counts of assault for attacking two women outside a Johannesburg club, but varsity students show him support.

Former Deputy Higher Education Minister Mduduzi Manana appeared at the Randburg Magistrate Court and has agreed to plead guilty to charges of assault.

Manana faced two counts of assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm for assaulting two women outside a popular Johannesburg club.

[LISTEN] Witness describes how Manana pulled woman’s hair, trampled on her

Eyewitness News reporter, Katleho Sekhotho attended the proceedings. She reports that it is important to note that the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) will be reviewing the application, despite Manana's lawyers confirming that the former deputy minister will plead guilty.

Things still might change.

Katleho Sekhotho, EWN reporter

We have been moved to a different court and the court proceeding will be convened by a different judge.

Katleho Sekhotho, EWN reporter

Sekhotho adds that there have been several students from both the University of Johannesburg and Fort Hare picketing outside the court, saying Manana's should be forgiven and not shunned by society.
