An ANC councillor from Johannesburg was released on two-thousand-rand’s bail when he appeared in the Wynberg Regional Court on a charge of rape. The state decided not to oppose his bail application. The man, who may not be identified at this stage, stands accused of raping a woman in Tembisa on the Gauteng East Rand on Boxing Day. Newsflash reports that the case was postponed to the 22nd of next month. ANC Youth League members welcomed bail for its former leader, while ANC Women’s League members regretted the decision.
