Human trafficking accused pastor Timothy Omotoso will once again try his hand at bail on August 29.

The pastor made a brief appearance in the Port Elizabeth Magistrate’s Court on Monday morning, where his matter was set down for a formal bail application – this time based on new facts.

The courtroom was quiet, predominantly packed with members of the media and police as Omotoso took to the dock.

Omotoso faces 22 charges related to contravening the Sexual Offences Act with two definite charges of rape contained in the charge sheet.

He was arrested at the Port Elizabeth International Airport on 20 April, 2017
