ZCC prophet in court for rape

2013-03-06 14:58

A Zion Christian Church (ZCC) prophet appeared in the Mankweng Magistrates’ Court today for allegedly raping a woman.

The case was postponed until March 14, said the Limpopo police’s Constable Moses Molepo.

The man was arrested on Sunday after a 27-year-old woman claimed he had held a knife to her throat and raped her on Saturday morning, during an all-night prayer session at the church’s headquarters in Moria, near Polokwane.

The Star reported yesterday that the church was not aware of the alleged rape.

“We don’t know anything about it. Ask the police. That’s all I can say to you,” ZCC official Ronnie Malahlela told the newspaper.
