27-year-old Osiphesona Ngcanga, Port Elizabeth lecturer has been freed after spending two years in jail for rape he did not commit.
 
He was found guilty by Port Elizabeth magistrate Nolitha Bara of raping a “drunk and unconscious” commerce student at a 21st birthday party on February 11 2017 in Kabega Park.
 
On January 14, Makhanda High Court judges Sunil Rugunanan and Buyiswa Majiki upheld his appeal and overturned Bara’s judgment.
 
The judges found that the evidence of a key state witnesses, who herself was drunk, to be unreliable and contradictory.
