Mandela Bay Metro African National Congress (ANC) councillor, Andile Lungisa, has been granted bail of R10 000 by the Port Elizabeth Magistrate’s Court.
Lungisa’s lawyers will approach a higher court to appeal his assault conviction and sentence.
He is serving a two year jail term after he was found guilty of assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
He attacked a DA councillor during a chaotic council meeting in October 2016.
Lungisa’s bail conditions include handing over his passport to the clerk of the court and reporting to the nearest police station daily from Monday to Friday.
