Zondi, the first witness in the case, claims she was sexually abused by the Nigerian pastor.
The church body has called on the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) and the office of the Chief Justice to consider the creation of special courts dedicated to rape cases.
The council says that Zondi's grilling by Advocate Peter Daubermann was reminiscent of the apartheid security branch's interrogation of prisoners.
Daubermann sparked outrage among Zondi’s supporters when he implied that she was a willing participant.
