JOHANNESBURG - The assault case against Given Mkhari has been provisionally withdrawn.

The prominent media owner and his wife appeared in court on Monday on assault charges, according to the National Prosecuting Authority.



That’s despite Mkhari issuing a statement, saying he and his wife have decided to withdraw the charges laid against each other.

The NPA says the prosecutor decided it was in the interest of justice for the case to go ahead.

The pair were arrested on Saturday after Mkhari brought assault charges against his wife.

She counter-charged him with common assault.
