A DA ward councillor in the City of Cape Town who’s been accused of rape, will appear in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on Monday.

It’s understood the case against him was opened at the Philippi police station last week.

According to reports, the councillor allegedly raped the victim in 2019.

His party says it has been informed of the alleged incident and has called for the law to take its course.

DA provincial chairperson, Jaco Londt says the matter is currently with the Federal Legal Commission.

“The DA will not hesitate to take the necessary action and will never condone this heinous crime. The facts must be ascertained and the matter dealt with quickly and decisively. The law must take its course without fear or favour. The matter has also been referred to the Federal Legal Committee’s which deals with disciplinary matters”.
