The trial of Nigerian pastor, Timothy Omotoso, resumes in Port Elizabeth High Court on Monday.
Omotoso was arrested more than four years ago and remains in custody.
The Nigerian pastor and his two co-accused are facing more than 90 sex and human trafficking-related charges.
Witnessing who have testified so far said they were promised a better life only to be sexually abused, the pastor had power over them.
The fifth witness in the case is expected to be cross-examined by Omotoso’s defence attorney, Peter Daubermann when the trial resumes.
The state alleges that the two co-accused lured young women from the Jesus Dominion International Church to a mission house near Durban where spiritual trainings used to take place.
The case is on the court roll for another month with more than 20 witnesses to be called.
