Johannesburg – The case against suspended ANC Western Cape secretary Faiez Jacobs has been postponed to March 31 for further investigation, the Western Cape National Prosecuting Authority said on Thursday.

NPA spokesperson Eric Ntabazalila said Jacobs had appeared in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

Jacobs has been accused of assaulting researcher Wesley Seale for failing to write an organisational report.

His suspension followed a post on Facebook by Anda Qhama Bici, which included a picture of Seale bleeding. 

Several Western Cape ANC members have recently made headlines for all the wrong reasons. 

These include suspended ANC chairperson Marius Fransman, who has been accused of sexual harassment, and PEC member Andile Lili who was arrested and later released on bail for being in contempt of court.
