He has been in police custody since April 2017 and now, for the third time, disgraced pastor Timothy Omotoso has once again been denied bail.

NPA regional spokesperson Anelisa Ngcakani tells Drum that Omotoso is a prohibited immigrant, which is one of the reasons for the failure of his bail application. 

“As such, his family are also prohibited immigrants and will be deported. So, he will have no family ties to South Africa once the family is deported and therefore, there is no guarantee that he will stand trial once his family has been deported. His children are citizens of UK," she says.
