Just in: Mduduzi Manana has resigned”

"You will have to speak to him on that", Mothapo said.

Mbalula said Manana would not be given special treatment because he was a member of parliament.

The news about the assault has prompted calls for Manana to resign.

President Jacob Zuma confirmed in a statement this morning that he has accepted Manana's resignation.

"I wish to apologize unreservedly to Ms. Mandisa Duma, her family, the government of South Africa and all South Africans, and women in particular, for the incident that happened at Cubana Restaurant in Fourways [district] over the weekend", he said in a statement a day after the incident. Many felt the resignation was long overdue.

"There must be no place to hide for women bashers like Mduduzi Manana".

"For all it is worth, we must commend him for not digging his heels and in the process keep the cloud of controversy that would have inhibited him from effectively performing his official duties", Sanco national spokesperson, Jabu Mahlangu said.

The ANC also since welcomed his resignation.

Zuma thanked Manana for his contribution to the work of government during his term of office.

Manana is charged with assaulting two women following an argument at a night club in Johannesburg on August 5.

Manana appeared in court four days after the incident to answer a charge of assault with intention to cause grievous bodily harm and was granted R5000 bail. She allegedly called Manana gay and he called this a provocation to attack the woman.

Duma‚ who sustained a black eye‚ bruised knees and a swollen face and neck claimed that while walking out of the venue, Manana slapped her cousin across the face before turning on her in the parking lot.
