Pretoria - IPID head Robert McBride is appearing in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Wednesday afternoon over the alleged assault of his daughter. 

McBride was present in court, however the matter has not been heard yet. 

He has been charged with child abuse and an alternate charge of assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

In a statement issued on Saturday, McBride maintained that he was merely admonishing his daughter.  

He broke his silence after news broke earlier that he was being investigated for the assault of a minor child.

He said alleged assault claims were a "red herring".

In an interview with EWN on Monday, McBride’s teenage daughter dismissed reports that the assault claims against her father were part of a smear campaign targeting the IPID head.
