A 23-year-old man appeared before Village Chief Magistrate, Mompati Taolo, on Tuesday, facing a single count of rape.
Kabelo Mambale is accused of drunkenly gate-crashing a baby shower being held in Block 5 and raping one of the women in attendance.
Details of the charge sheet are that the suspect raped a 26-year-old victim, without using protection.
Prosecuting the case, Mariam Tlhapi, asked that a plea be reserved as investigations into the incident are still at a primary stage.
However, the suspect pleaded not guilty, before court quicky reminded him not to make a plea.
Despite Tlhapi’s arguments that the accused be remanded in custody to avoid potentially interfering with the police’s investigations, Mambale was granted bail on condition that he does not communicate with the victim.
He was also ordered to report to Gaborone West police every fortnight.
