“The case was postponed to May 30 for further investigation,” police spokesman Sergeant Mamello Macheoane said.

The 33-year-old nurse appeared for a trial date to be set in the high court.

He was arrested after a 50-year-old woman cancer patient alleged she was raped during a night shift at the National Hospital.

The woman's husband told police the attack happened on October 15.

The patient, who has since died, could not identify a woman nurse who she said held her down while the male nurse raped her.

The man is out on bail. - Sapa
