Convicted woman beater Mduduzi Manana's former domestic helper who withdrew assault charges against the former deputy-minister had earlier described him as an abusive boss.
Zimbabwean national Christine Wiro, 43, had told Sowetan of how her three week stint as Manana's cleaner and cook was characterized by verbal abuse at the slightest mistake.
She said the first verbal abuse occurred on her first day on the job when Manana threw tantrums after she had not cooked.
Wiro withdrew the charges of intimidation, crimen injuria and common assault against Manana just hours after opening a case at the Douglasdale police station.
