South African Finance Minister Enoch Godongwana plans to continue exercising his duties, after the police informed him that a criminal complaint of sexual assault has been made against him.

Godongwana reiterated his denial of the allegation in a statement Thursday. He also denied an additional assertion that he attempted to silence the complainant by bribing her.
