Manana's former domestic worker fears for her safety

The Commission for Gender Equality says Mduduzi Manana's former domestic worker Christine Wiro fears for her safety after the former minister allegedly waited outside her home earlier this month, where he is said have offered her thousands of rands to drop the assault charges.

Wiro laid a complaint of common assault against Manana earlier this month, accusing him of pushing her down the stairs.

Manana has since opened a case of perjury against her.

Baloyi says Wiro is devastated by the latest development and plans to challenge the former minister.

Christine Wiro is hurt and deeply affected by the latest development. All she wanted was a job and to be respected.

On the 6th, she found Mr Manana outside her house. That goes to show he knows very well where she stays, he followed her and that is why the case has been moved to the provincial offices.
