Pastor Letsego of Christ Embassy in Limpopo, South Africa reportedly hanged himself after he accidentally sent photos of his genitals to members of his church using the WhatsApp mobile phone texting app.
According to this report, the married pastor intended to send the pictures to his mistress, a member of the same church.
The message that accompanied the photos read:
Wife is away, it’s all yours tonight.
He reportedly realised his mistake right after pressing the send button of his phone.
Members of the WhatsApp church group who received the photos and message were shocked and outraged. They tried to call up the pastor, who wouldn’t answer. The pastor then left the group.
The following day, he was found hanging in his rented church house.
Said one of Pastor Letsego’s congregants who declined to be named:
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.
