Trial of rape accused Omotoso postponed to Wednesday
The trial of rape accused Nigerian pastor Timothy Omotoso and his two co-accused has been postponed by a day.
Judge Irma Schoeman was appointed to preside over the trial in the Port Elizabeth High Court.
This is after Judge Mandela Makaula recused himself when it emerged that the state witness had been accommodated at a guesthouse owned by his wife in March.
Omotoso faces 63 main charges, including human trafficking, rape and sexual assault.
Clement Manyathela on the Xolani Gwala Show chats to EWN reporter Shamiela Fisher to give an update on the trial.
What happened this morning is that the defence brought an application that it wants the state to further furnish them with further particulars pertaining to the 97 charges against Omotoso.Shamiela Fisher, Reporter - EWN
She says the state says it has given all the information it can give at this stage of the trial.
Judge Schoeman, therefore, postponed the matter until Wednesday to afford the state and defence time to prepare their arguments.
