Cheryl Zondi has launched a foundation to support women and children in South Africa. The Non-Profit Organisation (NPO) has officially been registered and will be called the The Cheryl Zondi Foundation.
Zondi told the media that she named the foundation after herself, because of the support she received after her ordeal. She came into the spotlight at the trial of Nigerian pastor Timothy Omotoso who is facing charges of racketeering, violating the sexual offences act, human trafficking and rape, along with two others named Zukiswa Sitho (28) and Lusanda Solani (36).
She claimed she was sexually assaulted by Omotoso as she told the court she believed God was on her alleged attacker’s side. She recounted graphic details of the sexual assault on her, allegedly at the hands of the pastor.
The senior pastor at the Jesus Dominion International Church has been in prison since his arrest in April last year.
- He was denied bail twice after it came to light that he was a flight risk. Lusanda and Zukiswa, who are accused of recruiting, grooming and monitoring the movements of girls for the Nigerian pastor based in South Africa, are out on R2 000 bail each.
