Johannesburg - The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) will not prosecute disgraced ANC MP Mduduzi Manana over the alleged assault of his domestic worker.

Manana, who previously pleaded guilty to assaulting three women at a nightspot in Fourways, was accused of allegedly pushing his former domestic worker Christine Wiro down the stairs at his Fourways residence.

The 43-year-old domestic worker quit her job and reported the matter to the Douglasdale Police Station, but fearing for her life, went on to withdraw her complaint.

An audio recording then emerged, in which Manana is heard asking Wiro to drop the matter and offers her "100K" as "consolation", but he then claimed that the former domestic worker was, in fact, trying to extort money from him.

Manana then opened a perjury case against Wiro.

The NPA on Monday confirmed it would not prosecute the ANC MP over the matter, telling eNCA there was no prospect of successful prosecution. 

The NPA could not be reached for comment.
