JOHANNESBURG - The rape case against Devine Deliverance Church leader James Thubakgale was postponed in the Mankweng Regional Court in Polokwane on Friday, police in the Limpopo province said.

The court was set to deliver judgment after the 57-year-old Thubakgale stood trial for allegedly raping two girls back in 2012. The two victims were aged 14 and 16 at the time.

Thubakgale is also facing further charges of fraud and assault and more than 40 charges of rape in a separate case.
