Zuma attacker gets R8 000 fine
Johannesburg - The man who spilled his drink on President Jacob Zuma was fined R8 000, suspended for three years, by the Durban Magistrate's Court on Wednesday, the SABC reported.
Daryl Peense was found guilty of assault on July 27. He was arrested during the Durban July horse race last year.
During his trial, Peense denied deliberately spilling his drink on the president, claiming it spilled when people pushed against him to get a better view of Zuma.
He claimed he was drunk at the time and was standing over a balcony when this happened.
It emerged during the trial that the spilled drink had not touched the president as a bodyguard shielded him.
