JOHANNESBURG - Former Deputy Minister of Higher Education Mduduzi Manana has promised to comply with the court order.

Manana&39;s legal representative said he will pay his R100 000 fine and do 500 hours of community service, after admitting to assaulting three women.

The Randburg magistrate&39;s court also called on Manana to undergo anger management.

He assaulted the women in a Johannesburg nightclub in August.

Manana&39;s sentence has been criticised as the country battles to contain gender-based violence.

"We are happy with the outcome, it was what we were hoping for and it is a good day," said Mduduzi Manana&39;s Lawyer, Michael Motsoeneng Bill.
