Pastor in court for third rape charge

2012-01-06 20:07

Johannesburg - The Limpopo pastor arrested on Monday for raping a 14-year-old in Seshego appeared in the Polokwane Magistrate's Court to face a third rape charge on Friday, police said.

The second rape charge, laid by an 18-year-old from Polokwane and the third charge laid by a 20-year-old from Seshego, will from now on be heard simultaneously in Polokwane, said Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi.

The man's next court appearance for charges two and three will be on January 11.

Friday's court appearance was to have taken place in Seshego but an agreement was reached for Polokwane to take the case as the man was being held in the police cells in the town.

The first charge will remain in the Seshego Magistrate' Court unless an agreement can be reached between the National Prosecuting Authority and the Department of Justice, Mulaudzi said.

"He was granted R2 000 bail [on Tuesday] for the first case which makes it tricky to now combine it with the later two cases."

He will appear again on the first charge in Seshego on February 17.

    No real comment. Just disgusted at people and the legal system in RSA. The SOB should be hanged by the neck until dead.

      Gregory its sad when a man of the cloth do these things. Our justice will judge him on earth but one day he has to answer to God.

      The christians (people who believe in the existence of a "sugar candy mountain" did not send him to rape. Leave them alone. They have a right to believe the unbelievable.

      These kids will never experience true love and x.t.c. Thanks to god and his preacher boys. No condemnation and psalms can fix that . No bible quotes . Prayers and resurrections . So please good christian folk, take ur advice ... And shove it.

      Gregory, if you had half a brain I would engage you in debate, but your are nothing but a hate filled troll.

    Why was he not arrested and put behind bars the first time he did it!

      Maybe the community should put a burning bicycle tyre around his neck as a final written warning.

      Perfume ~ Rape isn't regarded as a serious crime - it's the national sport.
