The Nyanga doctor who was accused of raping his patient has claimed that she asked him for money minutes before making the allegations against him.
This surfaced as the bail application of Dr Oluwabusuyi Babalola continued at the Wynberg Magistrate Court on Wednesday.
Dr. Oluwabusuyi Babalola ,46, faces charges of rape following allegations by a 26-year-old woman that he attacked her when she went to the Nyanga Day Hospital to get treatment for her backache.
Investigating officer Warrant Officer Adam Kappers told the court on Wednesday that the woman informed him that she was receiving death threats.
“The complainant told me she received private number calls from a male person who threatened her life,” he testified.
“According to her a man person told her today is the day you are going to die’.
“I spoke to her [on Tuesday] and she told me she can go nowhere in Nyanga, she now fears for her life.
In the process of cross examination, the lawyer of the accused, Joshua Greeff told the officer that his client once again denied the allegation and also said that the door to the consultant room was not locked and they were people walking in and out of it.
“After the consultation she [complainant] asked the applicant for financial assistance, asked if he could help her,” Greeff said.
“When the doctor politely said he could not assist her, she then said: “You can’t say that, you are a medical doctor.”
The court case continues on November 25.
