No intention to handle Manana's case in favourable manner - police ministry
Police Minister Fikile Mbalula says that deputy Higher Education Minister Mduduzi Manana will not be treated with kid gloves as he faces assault charges.
Mbalula briefed the media on the assault case against Manana on Thursday afternoon, after his appearance at the Randburg Magistrates Court.
The police ministry's Vuyo Mhaga says they are satisfied with how proceedings have unfolded so far and will continue to ensure that Manana is not treated favourably.

He says that the police ministry will use this matter as a case study going forward.
