Polokwane - A traditional healer will appear in the Nebo Magistrate's Court on Monday on a charge of rape.

The 43-year-old man was arrested on Saturday night, a day after a 16-year-old girl was raped in Ga-Marishane village.

According to police, it is alleged that the girl went to this traditional healer's home for a traditional medical consultation, where she was given traditional medications to drink.

After consuming the medicine, she felt dizzy and the suspect allegedly took her to a room where he raped her.

The suspect was nabbed following a manhunt after the man disappeared following the incident, police said.
