At least one of eight ANC members facing criminal charges in Limpopo has voluntarily stepped aside from party activities.

Acting regional secretary of the Veterans League, Sam Montane, who is facing a charge of common assault for allegedly assaulting a woman at a store in September last year, has voluntarily stepped aside. He was captured on video assaulting the woman.

Montane confirmed he has voluntarily stepped aside. 

“I wrote a letter to the provincial secretary informing him that I will be stepping aside until my case is finalised. I will be appearing again in the Mahwelereng magistrate’s court on May 31,” he said.
