A so called man of God is in serious trouble after he allegedly kidnapped three ladies and raped them at gun point.
According to online publication, Sowetan, the pastor who was not named because the case is in court, has subjected the girls whose ages are 17, 18 and 25 respectively, to humiliating acts and threats of killing them and their families should they refuse to be raped.
It was also learnt that two of the younger girls are members of the pastor's church in Wedela township in Carletonville, while the third victim is a friend of the two teenagers.
Narrating the ordeal they went through to the Sowetan, one of the girls said:
"The pastor pushed me to the bed at gunpoint and said we must perform a 'free' pornographic movie to make my friends jealous. He put his fingers inside my private parts. I pleaded with his wife to make him stop.
He brought me into the room and said we must have a foursome. We refused. He forcefully penetrated me with his fingers and once he was aroused, he proceeded to rape my two friends who were bleeding from being assaulted.
We pleaded with his wife to help us. We could hear her laughing. He forced us to watch as he raped each of us at gunpoint. I prayed to God to spare our lives.
My family was all I could think about as he was raping me. My body had been numbed from all the physical pain I had endured from him."
The Sowetan learnt that at some point during the ordeal, the pastor looked insane and was rambling on about how he would kill the girls but however, panicked and released the older woman after her family called and threatened to send the police to his house.
The police later came and rescued the two girls and arrested the pastor who is now facing three counts of rape and assault, two of kidnapping and one of pointing a firearm.
It was also revealed that the parents of the girls had sent them to the pastor because they had believed he could give them spiritual guidance and jobs.
The development has left the pastor's congregation totally in shock after the allegations were made against him while they have also left the church in the droves.
A former member said:
"The church has been dissolved indefinitely. Everybody is shocked at what he did. We are angry at him and don't want anything to do with him anymore.
We accepted that he practised polygamy but why he would rape still baffles us."
