THE Port Elizabeth High Court trial of a 33-year-old man accused of the brutal rape of a then six-year-old Motherwell girl was postponed yesterday.

This came as COPE members protested outside the Bird Street court yesterday.

COPE PR councillor Nobenguni Magwaca said they could not tolerate rapists and that people like the accused, Xolile Tose, if guilty, should not be allowed back into society.

“They deserve to rot in jail,” he said. – Yoliswa Sobuwa and Lee-Anne Butler
