Meanwhile chaos erupted outside the court after two opposing groups clashed following the postponement.
Supporters from Omotoso’s Jesus Dominion International church who have been stationed outside the court since the trial started last week went head to head with members of the #TotalShutdown movement who gathered outside the court in support of state witness Cheryl Zondi and other alleged victims of Omotoso.
The mid-afternoon fracas saw the two groups in a standoff with police called in to keep them apart while they sang and chanted for their respective causes.
Omotoso’s defence attorney Peter Daubermann also suffered the brunt of the supporters of the #TotalShutdown movement‚ who followed him to his car hurling insults and at one stage throwing water at him.
Daubermann was escorted by police to his BMW parked at the back of the court building before speeding off.
Omotoso’s wife‚ Taiwo‚ who caused a stir in court earlier this week for commenting and gesturing during Zondi’s testimony was also led out of the court under police guard as protesters gathered around her car.
A new witness is expected to take the stand when the case resumes on Monday.
