Sangoma arrested for rape

A 66-year-old Ennerdale traditional healer was arrested for rape on Tuesday evening, Johannesburg police said.

He had allegedly raped a 21-year-old woman during a ceremony on Monday, spokesperson Constable Edwin Ntsheo said. "The woman had approached him for help, and he told her that the ancestors won't allow him to help unless she takes off all her clothes so that he may bath her." She did so and was raped.

The man was arrested after the woman pointed him out to police. He was expected to appear in the Vereeniging Magistrate's Court soon.
