Thubakgale has been incarcerated since 20 August after the Mankweng Magistrate’s Court convicted him on two counts of rape.

He faces five counts related to the rape of a minor, four of assault and one of fraud.

Meanwhile, five other members of his church have appeared in court for the alleged assault.

Their case has been postponed to 2 December and their bail was extended.
