An audio recording of the controversial former Deputy Higher Education Minister Mduduzi Manana allegedly offering to pay R100 000 to his domestic worker Christine Wiro, to drop the assault charges against him, has emerged.

Manana allegedly pushed Wiro down the stairs of his Fourways home after she reportedly opened the gate for the wrong person.

The money was allegedly for trying to compensate his domestic worker to drop the crimen injuria and common assault charges.

In the audio, Manana can be heard trying to convince the family to approach the station commander and drop the charges.

Manana has been on the news for all the wrong reasons after he was charged and convicted for assaulting a woman in Cubana in Fourways on August 6, 2017.

The court ordered Manana to undergo anger management programs.

Manana could not be reached for comment.
