Limpopo Police warns members of community about alleged fake prophets

The South African Police Service in Limpopo would like to caution women of all ages and categories about the unscrupulous individuals calling themselves prophets who are out to terrorize them.

This cautioning follows the incident where a 16-year-old girl from a village outside Thohoyandou was unexpectedly raped by a false prophet.

It is alleged that a self-acclaimed prophet sent the victim a text message disguised as a prophet enroute to a church service in Dzwerani village outside Thohoyandou. He lured her to come and receive the divine intervention on her life problems.

On her arrival, the suspect prophet took her towards the said church and on the way, he instructed her to have sex with him in order to acquire mystical powers.

She declined to the request but he raped her and force her to wear black clothing from the bag he was carrying before entering the church with her. Inside the church there were some unknown congregants, all wearing black clothes as well.

The suspect was identified but he is still on the run and the manhunt is still continuing.

Anyone with information which can lead to the arrest of the suspect involved in this matter, may contact Major General Rosina Mulaudzi at 082 451 7217 or the Crime Stop number 08600 10111 or SMS Crime Line 32211 or the nearest Police Station.

The SAPS Provincial Commissioner Lieutenant General Nneke Ledwaba has condemned this barbaric acts practiced in the name of religion and that all the people who are still perpetrating this type of incidents, will be dealt with accordingly and without compromise.
