A South African pastor has been accused of raping boys in his church, after telling them they’re God’s ‘chosen one’.

The South African Pastor who is facing two counts of rape and one of sexual assault, reportedly abused the boys who were attending a ministry school at his church to graduate as pastors themselves.

“It started in 2015 one night when he woke me up while I was sleeping with other boys in another bedroom that we shared as junior pastors,” the teen said. He said the pastor called him to his bedroom and told him that he was the “chosen one”.

“He said God had chosen me to be his (pastor) protector. He ‘anointed’ himself with oil all over his body and started kissing me while I was shocked. He then penetrated me.” victim revealed.

The Pastor was also accused of forcing a third victim to perform blow jobs on him every night. However the abused boy ran away from the church because it was traumatizing him.
