Templeman was issued with a trial date when he appeared before Harare magistrate Edwin Marecha yesterday.
His trial will commence on June 20, 2018.

It was alleged that Maphosa travelled with the minor to Beitbridge and clocked three days with her without any communication with her parents.
According to State papers the girl was exposed to drugs and alcohol abuse.
Details of how the minor was located by her family leading to Maphosa’s arrest will be presented when the matter goes to trial.
The State affirms that Maphosa acted unlawfully.
