Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
Limpopo education department circuit inspector Makwadza Nkomane will know his fate this week when the Naphuno magistrate's court in Lenyenye passes judgment in his rape case.
This after the victim's family lodged a complaint with the Justice Department that the case had been dragging on for too long.
Nkomane, 41, who was a school principal at Sherulurulu Primary School at the time of the alleged rape, has since been promoted to education inspector in the Ritavi education circuit.
He allegedly raped a 22-year-old former pupil of a high school where he was a teacher before his promotion to become a principal.
Nkomane had allegedly offered to give the victim a lift from Dan village to Nkowankowa on July 16 last year. The woman was allegedly going to buy groceries at the local shops when Nkomane offered her a lift.
Instead of dropping her, he drove to a forest near Lenyenye were he allegedly raped her.
After this, he allegedly took her to a doctor to clean her up in an endeavour to conceal that she had been raped, but the doctor, who is a state witness in the case, allegedly advised the victim to lay a charge of rape.
After the case was opened, Nkomane handed himself over to police. He appeared in court and was given bail of R800.
The case was postponed several times after his lawyers failed to come to court.
