African National Congress (ANC) Member of Parliament Mduduzi Manana has resigned from Parliament.
In a statement issued on Tuesday afternoon, Manana says there was mounting pressure for him to step down but he’s chosen to do so now after his name has been cleared.
On Monday, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said that it won’t prosecute Manana for allegedly abusing his former domestic worker Christine Wiro.
The NPA cited insufficient evidence for its decision.
On Friday, Manana was booed by delegates at the ANC Gauteng conference.
He now says he will focus on the ANC election campaign, his studies and business interests.
