Kimberley doctor charged with rape of two patients

A medical doctor, accused of raping two patients, is in custody after a bail application in a Kimberly court on Monday.

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) in the Northern Cape said he was accused of raping a 17-year-old at his surgery on 15 August. “The application has been remanded to 24 August,” said the NPA.

Before Monday’s bail application, however, the doctor had made an appearance in the same court for another charge of sexual assault, which like the first case, also happened during a consultation, when he is alleged to have sexually assaulted a 25-year-old patient on 20 April.

The matter was postponed to 26 August for possible bail application. The NPA said investigations were ongoing for both cases.
