Police have arrested a 51-year-old pastor for the alleged rape of a 12-year-old girl in Limpopo.

The suspect allegedly arrived at the victim’s house for a prayer session. He then told the victim’s mother that the girl was sick and that she needed to go with him to the nearest river so she can be healed.

According to reports, the mother later started panicking when the pastor and her daughter did not return.

She then informed the girl’s father, who then went looking for them.

“The father found his child half-naked, running and screaming for help. The frightened girl then alleged the pastor raped her.”

Police were immediately informed and a manhunt was launched for the suspect. He was later arrested and is expected to appear before the Thabazimbi Magistrate’s Court on a charge of rape.
