Deputy Higher Education Minister Mduduzi Manana
According to gender, politics and culture analyst Nomboniso Gasa, Mdu Manana in his video was simply announcing his resignation.

A video statement from former Deputy Minister of Higher Education Mduduzi Manana was released on Twitter on Saturday.

In the video, Manana announced his resignation from his position. This, after he was filmed attacking a woman in a nightclub a few weeks ago.

He also apologised to the country for his conduct saying "there is no excuse to ever justify what he has done".

Gender, politics, and culture analyst Nomboniso Gasa, says Manana hasn't really apologised to South Africans but has rather pulled a publicity stunt.

He doesn't say what he did, he doesn't name to whom he is apologising, he merely gives us this bland statement simply announcing that he is resigning which is cast in such pompous terms. It is ridiculous.

The issue howerver is that the law has to take its course.

The notion that people do wrong things, starting with President Zuma, and come back to apologise, it undermines rule of law. It undermines what needs to happen.

Gasa says Manana sounded like a person who has no grasp of what he has done and no grasp of what he is suppose to do.

What should happen going forward is that Manana should answer to the crimes he has committed, says Gasa.
