2010-10-23 00:00

THE man accused of spilling a drink on President Jacob Zuma during the Durban July briefly appeared at the Durban Magistrate’s Court yesterday.

Gauteng racehorse owner Daryl Peense (33) looked calm and wore jeans and a short-sleeved white shirt as he appeared before magistrate Gugu Mpikeleni.

His case was postponed to December 10 for the commencement of the trial.

Asked to comment on the case after the proceedings, Peense said: “I don’t have a comment, but you can take my photo; it’s not a problem.”

Peense was charged with assault following the July 31 incident at the horseracing event. He is out on R500 bail.

According to the charge sheet, Peense “did wrongfully and intentionally assault President Jacob Zuma by pouring a liquid at him”.
