Police contact SA minister over sexual assault claim

South Africa’s Finance Minister Enoch Godongwana was on Thursday contacted by police over a complaint of sexual assault made against him, he is quoted as confirming to local media.

The assault complaint was made by a woman employed at a hotel where the minister stayed with his wife in the eastern Mpumalanga province earlier this month.

Mr Godongwana denies any wrongdoing.

Police on Thursday informed the minister of the complaint against him.

“I am relieved to have finally been contacted by the police and given the opportunity to hear what I am being accused of. I am also glad to have the opportunity to place my denial on record. I take the allegations very seriously,” the minister is quoted as saying.

He also ruled out resigning as finance minister.
