A catering manager at the prestigious Diocesan School for Girls (DSG) in Makhanda in the Eastern Cape has been suspended after he allegedly beat his ex-girlfriend black and blue during a confrontation over allegations of cheating.

The 34-year-old man worked as a catering manager for a service provider contracted by the boarding school.

He will appear in the Grahamstown Magistrate's Court on Friday on a charge of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm.
