VANDERBIJLPARK - The Vanderbijlpark Magistrate’s Court has granted an interim protection order against the former Mayor of Emfuleni Local Municipality. The disgraced politician will not be allowed to contact a 14-year old girl, who he stands accused of sexually grooming. A group of protesters gathered outside the court yesterday ahead of the former mayor’s appearance. The man allegedly shared a semi-nude picture of the girl on an ANC Whatsapp group. Protesters carrying Cosatu “stop violence against women” boards sang outside the court amongst others in ANC and ANCWL attire.
