Minister of Finance Enoch Godongwana denies any allegations of sexual assault.

On Saturday, the minister released a statement saying he was aware of a sexual harassment case against him in Skukuza, Mpumalanga.

It is believed that the incident took place in his hotel room.

Gadongwana says the statements were made a week ago.

“It appears that the case was initiated almost a week after Minister Godongwan completed his private visit to Skukuza in the Kruger National Park. The minister was informed that the case was initiated by an employee of Skukuza, who offered massage services to guests in the rooms.”

The statement further said that at the time of the alleged incident, Godongwana was in his room with his wife, who said there was no basis for the allegations.

“I have always supported and respected the rights and dignity of women and this accusation goes against everything I stand for,” Godongwana said.

Gadongwana says he has yet to receive an official communication from the police and cannot comment further.

The school guard was found guilty of rape and sexual violence

In a separate incident, a security guard at a school in the northwest was found guilty of sexually assaulting two students at the school where he works and has since been fired.

The incidents involved siblings, both minors and victims of sexual violence in separate cases. The first incident occurred in 2015.

After the school principal and governing body failed to take action against the warden, he is alleged to have sexually assaulted the other sibling in an incident in 2017.

The second incident is believed to have been an act of revenge against his first victim for reporting on him.
