PORT ELIZABETH: Judge Mandela Makaula on Tuesday dismissed an application in the Port Elizabeth High Court for leave to appeal his earlier decision not to recuse himself in the rape and human trafficking trial involving Nigerian pastor Timothy Omotoso.

Judge Makaula also dismissed an application for leave to appeal his earlier decision not to quash the charges against Omotoso and his alleged accomplices Lusanda Sulani and Zukiswa Sitho.

Defence attorney Peter Daubermann indicated that he would now follow a process to petition the Supreme Court of Appeal. The case was postponed provisionally until December 10.
