New Trial for Omotoso After South African Judge's Recusal?

The trial against controversial pastor Timothy Omotoso may have to start afresh following the recusal of Judge Mandela Makaula from the matter, writes The Citizen. This comes after Omotoso's lawyer Peter Daubermann previously pushed for the recusal of Makaula, claiming  the judge was "biased" following the testimony of the first witness, Cheryl Zondi.
