Human trafficking and rape-accused televangelist Timothy Omotoso, who was declared a prohibited person in South African, wants that status to be reviewed and set aside.

Omotoso's legal representative Sizwe Maci confirmed to News24 that the review application was lodged with Minister of Home Affairs Aaron Motsoaledi. 

Omotoso, who is currently at a correctional centre in Port Elizabeth as an awaiting trial detainee, wants the minister to set aside the decision of then acting director-general J W McKay, which was taken last September.
