The bail application of a Zion Christian Church (ZCC) member accused of raping a woman was postponed by the Mankweng Magistrate's Court on Friday, Limpopo police said.

Constable Moses Molepo said the accused fell sick during proceedings.

"He said he was not feeling well, and the court had no choice but to adjourn. He has now been admitted to Mankweng Hospital."

The matter was postponed to April 25. It had been put off before because the investigating officer was ill.

The alleged rapist was arrested on March 3 after a 27-year-old woman claimed he held a knife to her throat and raped her during an all-night prayer session at the church's headquarters in Moria, near Polokwane, on March 2.

It was initially reported the man was a prophet, but the church denied this, saying he was an ordinary member.
