Cheryl Zondi Biography – Cheryl Zondi Wiki
Cheryl Zondi is the first witness to testify against Nigerian pastor Timothy Omotoso. Pastor Timothy Omotoso is accused of the rape and human trafficking of young female congregants of his Durban-based church.
During her testimony in the Port Elizabeth High Court, Zondi said that Omotoso sexually abused her over a period of two-and-a-half years while she was a member of the Jesus Dominion International Church. She was 14 years old at the time the incidents started.
Zondi told the Port Elizabeth High Court how at first she was in awe of Omotoso after watching clips of him performing “miracles” but soon became disillusioned by him after she realised the sexual acts he made her perform on him were nothing more than predatory sexual assaults.
Pastor Timothy Omotoso and his two co-accused‚ Lusanda Sulani and Zukiswa Sitho‚ face 63 charges in total ranging from racketeering to sexual assault and rape allegedly committed across the country and abroad‚ including in Nigeria and Israel.
