The married pastor simply identified as Letsego, based in South Africa, wanted to send the picture to his lover, who happens to be a member of the same church. He accidentally sent the photo to the church's Whatsapp group.
He reportedly captioned the picture thus: “wife is away, its all yours tonight”.
Soon after, it dawned on him that he has hit the 'send' button, with congregants expressing shock and outrage over the mishap. The Pastor is alleged to have immediately exited the group and stopped answering his calls. He was found 24 hours later hanging in his rented church house.
“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.
