An old video of the pastor’s initial arrest has resurfaced, leading many to falsely think it was filmed recently.
Omotoso’s defence Peter Daubermann applied on behalf of his client for Judge Mandela Makaula to recuse himself citing claims that Makaula had allowed his humanity to get the better of him “and unfortunately I have to criticise you on those comments”, said Daubermann.
Daubermann outlined that Makaula wishing Zondi well in her exams had led him to think Makaula was sympathetic towards Zondi.
Quoting Makaula, Daubermann said comments such as “leave it to us” meant “leave it to me to see that justice is done on your behalf”.
“I understand what happened, my lord, but it’s not your job to consult with the witness. A judge cannot hint bias,” added Daubermann.
Makaula turned down Daubermann’s request but postponed the trial to Thursday for the lawyer to seek further legal advice.
