Omotoso case expected to head to the Constitutional Court

The case of controversial pastor Timothy Omotoso and his co-accused Lusanda Sulani and Zukiswa Sithois is headed to the Constitutional Court after the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) on Monday morning dismissed the trio’s application, challenging the jurisdiction of the Port Elizabeth High Court.
