A young rape victim told the Gqeberha High Court on Wednesday controversial Nigerian televangelist Tim Omotoso made her believe raping her was the will of God.

A tearful Cheryl Zondi, 27, who was only 14 years old at the time of the first rape, took the witness stand on Wednesday to be cross-examined by Omotoso’s lawyer, Peter Daubermann.

Zondi is one of 49 witnesses who will testify in the renewed trial of the Nigerian pastor and his two co-accused, Lusanda Sulani and Zukiswa Sitho.

The 65-year-old leader of the Jesus Dominion International Church faces 63 charges ranging from rape and trafficking in persons for sexual purposes to sexual assault and racketeering.

He was arrested by the Hawks in April 2017, but his trial has faced numerous delays, including a different prosecutor and judge being appointed.
