Siyabuswa, Mpumalanga - A pastor accused of raping a teenager was arrested on Friday, Mpumalanga police said.

The man allegedly raped a 17-year-old girl at his church in Siyabuswa, Brigadier Selvy Mohlala said.

The girl's brother took the teenager to the pastor for prayers because she was sick. The pastor asked the brother to leave and to fetch the girl later. He then allegedly asked her to undress and raped her, Mohlala said. The priest was expected to appear in the Mdutjana Magistrate's Court on Monday.
