Callers rally behind Zondi, question support for Omotoso at the trial

Cheryl Zondi continues with her testimony against Pastor Timothy Omotoso, who is accused of rape and human trafficking on Wednesday.

Many people have voiced their concerns about the badgering style of questioning by the defence towards Zondi during the trial when she was on the witness stand.

Callers on the Eusebius McKaiser Show with Sizwe Mpofu-Walsh have rallied behind Zondi and questioned the support for Omotoso.

Sarashni, a caller says she watched that 'nightmare of a trial' and she was angered by the whole line of questioning.

There is something that really got me going is at one point the defence was asking her about consent when the rape happened when she was 14.

Sihle, another caller says what he found disgusting about the case is how some people have come forward in support for Omotoso.

More so that people are defying us for supporting Cheryl, and what people forget is that the defence has to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt.
