A fake prophet that allegedly raped a 16-year-old girl has been denied bail.
The fake prophet sent the victim a text message, tempting the teen to come and meet with him so that she could receive divine intervention on her life problems.
When she arrived, the fake prophet walked with her towards a church and on the way, he instructed her to have sex with him in order to acquire mystical powers.
When she declined the request he then raped her.
After raping her, the man forced the girl to wear some black clothes and proceeded with her to the church where all congregants were wearing black clothes as well.
After the service the girl reported the matter to the police.
The Thohoyandou Magistrate’s Court remanded him in custody until his next appearance on 7 September.
The Saps Provincial Commissioner Lieutenant General Nneke Ledwaba has condemned this barbaric act practiced in the name of religion and that all the people who are still perpetrating this type of incidents, will be dealt with accordingly.
