Suspended Mamelodi Sundowns director of marketing and communications Alex Shakoane appeared briefly in the Ga-Rankuwa magistrate's court yesterday.

The case was postponed to March 13.

Shakoane is charged with indecently assaulting the 15-year-old daughter of a colleague at the club. He is out on R1000 bail.

The incident allegedly took place outside the Morula Sun casino in Mabopane on October 7 last year.

Shakoane was suspended from the club immediately after he handed himself over to the Ga-Rankuwa police. The girl's father had laid a charge against him. Shakoane was accompanied by his lawyer when he handed himself over.

He was arrested and released on bail of R1000 at the time.
