Johannesburg - A North West hospital official and his friend appeared in the Taung Magistrate's Court on Tuesday for the alleged statutory rape of a teenage girl, said police.

The case was postponed until March 2 for a date for the transfer of the case to the regional court, said police spokesperson Brigadier Thulane Ngubane.

The two men, who may not be identified, were granted bail of R1 000 each at an earlier court appearance.

The official allegedly had an affair with the 15-year-old girl and had sex with her after a party.

He asked his friend to take the girl home, but on the way there, he too allegedly had sex with the girl.

She told her sister, who alerted the police.
