A Limpopo police sergeant, whose rape case was reinstated a few months ago, will have to wait for longer before knows his fate.

Sergeant Simon Rametse, 39, was to have appeared in the Tzaneen magistrate's court last week, but the court date was moved to January 28 and 29. The case will be heard in the Mankweng sexual offences court near Polokwane.

The case was postponed after Rametse sought a new lawyer, who asked the court to give him time to study the case documents.

The case was struck off the roll in January last year after the alleged disappearance of files related to the case.

Rametse was arrested after he allegedly raped a 13-year-old minor in February 2006.

According to Bolobedu police spokesman Captain Freddy Maenetja the case was reinstated by the director of public prosecutions.

Maenetja said the victim was a primary school pupil at the time of the incident. She told police the rape happened after the suspect drove her and a friend home one night.

At the time Rametse was reinstated in his job pending an appeal. He is out on R2 000 bail pending an appeal.
