Church Bishop caught in a love triangle
The Arch Bishop of St Philips Faith Healing Church in Palapye, Sidney Setilo,37 recently landed in court over his wife’s accusations that he was having an affair with his secretary.
The conflict started in March this year when Lame Setilo, 33 found a message in her husband’s phone sent to 48- year- old Oikobile ‘Daki’ Lewate which read mama nna tota o nkgotsofaditse ke go n***** tota (I really got satisfied when I had sex with you).
Lame has since filed a marriage wrecking case against Lewate and Palapye customary court Chief Masego Olebile who presided over the case was expected to pass judgement next week Tuesday.
The aggrieved wife told The Voice that Lewate was her best friend and she never imagined that she could snatch her husband right under her nose.
She said after confronting her husband about the explicit message he admitted having an affair with Lewate while begging the wife to forgive him as he had sinned.
“After that I went to see Lewate’s parents and told them about the issue but for some strange reason that made things worse as my husband started behaving differently. He started coming home late and stopped eating the food I cooked. Right now I am under treatment of High Blood pressure and I suspect it is because I bottled up this problem for too long. I have once attempted suicide,’’ she said.
Setilo also brought before court as evidence of marriage wrecking an advert in which Lewate’s house was advertised for rent and her husband put as the contact person.
She said what made matters worse was that when she separated with her husband he moved in with Lewate.
When she confronted Lewate the alleged husband snatcher told her that she was too poor to afford a lawsuit against her and that she must not bother suing as Setilo was going to divorce her because she cannot bear children and did not know how to cook.
However Lewate who has been divorced twice denied having an affair with Setilo and claimed they were just good friends.
She told court that being seen going around with a married man did not mean they have an affair and claimed that Lame just wanted to tarnish her image and make money as she was hoping to get financial compensation from the case..
