The trial of the alleged "Sunday rapist", Johannes Jacobus Steyn, is expected to continue on Thursday.

The case was postponed on Wednesday after Judge Sita Kolbe was absent in the High Court, sitting in the Palm Ridge Magistrate's Court, in Alberton.

Steyn has pleaded not guilty to two counts of murder, 11 of rape, 10 of sexual assault, 10 of kidnapping, one of attempted sexual assault, and one of attempted kidnapping.

Previously, two alibi witnesses denied Steyn's claims that they were with him on the days some of the crimes were committed. Kolbe ordered that the witnesses be not identified.

The first, a woman who worked with Steyn at the Yusuf Dadoo Hospital in Krugersdorp during his community service, testified that she never went to his home. She was asked if she ever had sex with him at an abandoned holiday resort in Maropeng, where murdered teenager Louise de Waal's body was found.

"Definitely not... Maybe in his dreams," she answered.

Steyn had claimed he was with her on October 31, 2010 when an 11-year old girl was abducted in Krugersdorp and raped in Magaliesburg. She denied she was with him or ever had sex with him.
