Pastor Letsego who is based in Limpopo and a minister with Chris Oyakhilome’s Christ Embassy could not handle the shame of discovery and reportedly committed suicide.
The married clergyman captioned the picture;“wife is away, its all yours tonight”, which insinuated that he was having an extramarital affair with the intended recipient of his NSFW pictures.
Congregants at Letsego’s church are said to have expressed varying degrees of shock and outrage at the accidental mishap.
According to this report, the pastor who only realised his mistake after the deed was done immediately exited the group and refused to answer the numerous calls to his phone. He hung himself in the rented apartment the church got for him and was found there 24 hours later.
A source noted that there was already suspicion that the pastor was having an affair.
“Pastor’s antics have always been a cause for concern, he was always seen in the company of one of the deacons named Miriam and we suspected there was more to their friendship than meets the eye.
“Quizzed by his wife and congregants, he would shrug off the allegations and say as a Pastor he was a father to everyone and Miriam was his favourite Daughter,” said one of pastor Lesego’s congregants who refused to be named.
The Church’s authority is yet to give an official statement on the tragic suicide incident.
