- Cheryl Zondi accuses a Nigerian pastor Timothy Omotoso of sexually assaulting her
- Cheryl has testified against the pastor in court, where she gave details of the tragic incident
- The South African public has been supporting Cheryl and she's overwhelmed and happy about the support
Cheryl Zondi spent days at the stand of the Eastern Cape High Court in Port Elizabeth recounting and giving details of her alleged sexual abuse at the hands of Nigerian pastor Timothy Omotoso.
South Africans were outraged about the allegations and backed Cheryl every step of the way.
She has now written a thank you letter to the public for their passionate support.
Not only is this trial addressing the allegations against Omotoso, but it is also opening the can of worms that is the treatment of sexual assault victims.
Cheryl was treated questionably by the pastor's lawyers - there was suggested she wasn't forced but a willing participant.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier on how Cheryl was forced to answer four harrowing questions asked by what can only be described as a hostile team of defence lawyers.
