Nogwanya denied any wrongdoing and alleged that Feni was being used in a smear campaign by people who wanted to see him fired.
He enjoyed a three-month stay at Premier Hotel from the beginning of January to the end of March at the expense of the state while he was house hunting in East London.
He has confirmed that Feni went there to obtain clearance for the release of a press release.
The Dispatch earlier reported that another similar allegation by another Hawks employee had been made but no such incident was mentioned in the letter of suspension.
Dressed in a smart dark suit, white shirt and trainers, 72-year-old King smiled in the dock as he spoke only to confirm his personal details.
The head of the Hawks in the Eastern Cape, Major-General Nyameko Nogwanya, has been stripped of all his powers and authority and is to face a disciplinary hearing for allegedly twice sexually harassing a female staff member.
He faces three charges of buggery and 15 of indecent assault.
His lawyer, Steven Bird, said he 'will be contesting the allegations'.
National spokesman Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi, stated the matter was an internal matter and would not comment further.
In an interview with the Dispatch in mid July, Nogwanya, confirmed that Feni, had come to his hotel room to obtain clearance for a press release.
