Durban – Convicted fraudster Schabir Shaik has denied the latest allegation of assault on a caddie, claiming that the caddies were being used by people who wanted him back in jail.

The Mercury reported on Monday that Shaik, who was released on parole due to illness, was accused of assaulting and verbally abusing a caddie at Papwa Sewgolum Golf Course in Reservoir Hills.

Shaik was also accused of paying the caddie R500 not to lay criminal charges, which he has denied.

According to a report in the The Daily News on Tuesday, another caddie alleged that Shaik assaulted him two months earlier.

The caddie, Innocent Dlamini, claimed that Shaik beat him with his driver.

Shaik has since denied the alleged assault, adding that the caddie might have been a setup to “trap him”.

He said that should he assault anyone he would be sent back to prison.
