RUSTENBURG - A 49-year-old pastor, accused of five counts of rape and seven of sexual assault, appeared in the Klerksdorp Magistrate's Court on Monday. 

North West police said the pastor handed himself over to the police on Monday, after charges were laid against him in January and February 2018 on allegations of rape and sexual assault that occurred between 2015 and 2017.

"It was after the first incident was reported that seven other victims came forward and opened cases against the accused. The latter has been remanded in custody and will appear in court on Tuesday for a bail application," said Brigadier Sabata Mokgwabone.
