A Jotsholo based prophet- Nkathazo Mhlanga reportedly routinely raped  a  hysteria patient  for about six months and eventually impregnated her after she had sought assistance from him.

The 24 year old woman developed hysteria last year in August and her mother took her to Mhlanga, a well known healer for healing sessions.

Mhalanga would take the woman to the mountains for prayers.

 He would instruct her to undress before sprinkling a concoction of muti.

 After that he would occasionally have sex with her  and that was from August to February this year.

In February she started complaining of stomach pains to her mother and ended up narrating her sex ordeal.

A check-up at St Luke's Hospital certified her pregnant and a police report was made leading to Mhlanga's arrest.

He appeared before magistrate Ndumo Masuku in Lupane facing rape charges which he pleaded not guilty.

 He was remanded in custody to next week Thursday, B-Metro reported.
