Johannesburg - Deputy Minister of Higher Education and Training Mduduzi Manana has allegedly confessed to slapping a woman during an altercation outside a club in Johannesburg.
The incident reportedly happened at Cubana in Fourways in the early hours of Sunday morning and followed a spat over the ANC succession debate and the woman, Mandisa Duma, allegedly calling Manana gay.
According to a Twitter post by Tumi Sole, a witness reports seeing Manana beat the woman up while bouncers and the club manager stood there and watched.
"In the early hours of this morning [Sunday], I witnessed Deputy Higher Education Minister Manana go ape and beat up a defenceless woman coz she allegedly called him gay," the captioned post read.
"What hurt most is that people - including the bouncers and manager at Cubana Fourways - stood there and watch. A friend and I then intervened and instead of being sorry - his response was 'who are you and what do you think you can do to me'"?
