Johannesburg - Sexual assault charges against former ANC Western Cape chairperson Marius Fransman have been withdrawn in the Kimberley Magistrate's Court, it was reported on Tuesday.
According to The Citizen, the crimen injuria charges against Fransman were also withdrawn.
Fransman was charged for allegedly sexually assaulting his former personal assistant Louisa Wynand in 2016.
The offences were alleged to have taken place at a hotel in Kimberley, in the Western Cape and in Rustenburg, North West when Fransman and his team were en route to the ANC's January 8 celebrations in Rustenburg that year.
A case was opened shortly after and a few months later, Fransman was suspended from the ANC for five years after the party's national disciplinary committee found him guilty of two charges of misconduct.
