EWN reported his wife Mpumi Mpofu as saying that he had been treated at the Milpark Hospital in Johannesburg on Thursday.
“The doctors have decided to do further tests and we are hoping for a good outcome” she said.
Mpofu has had to take a break from his work at the Farlam Commission of Inquiry, where he is representing miners injured and arrested at the Marikana massacre, because of the mugging. But he was expected to return next week.
Although Mpofu said that he didn’t think that the attack on him was related to his work at the commission, stricter security measures were put in place at the commission in Rustenberg this week.
The SABC reported that police officials had been placed at back entrances leading into the Rustenburg Civic Centre, and were not allowing any entry while the commission was sitting.
Mpofu was admitted to an East London hospital on Thursday last week after being mugged and stabbed multiple times on the city’s beachfront, but returned to Johannesburg a few days later.
Meanwhile, leading legal barons in the country have called for speedy arrests for the culprits and that the law must take harsh sentences against them.
