    SCORNED WIFE: Olerato Elias

    Wife accuses prophet T.P. Elias of sexual misconduct with church ‘sisters’

  • Couple argue over missing condoms and morning after pills

The angry wife of a flamboyant local Prophet Thato Patrick Elias of Gates of Heaven Networks has depicted the glamorous pastor as nothing but a wolf in a sheep’s skin.

Olerato Lesego whose marriage to the self styled prophet T.P Elias is falling apart after a short four months of living together as husband and wife broke the silence after her husband filed for divorce following a bitter argument over missing condoms and morning after pills.

Painting a picture of the overseer of a close to 6 000 strong congregation as a womaniser whose house is more like a playboy mansion than a pastor’s home Olerato said: “He lives with young attractive women or ‘sisters’ who walk around clad in miniskirts and bikinis for his viewing pleasure.”

Speaking to The Voice, Olerato said that her marriage to the prophet famed for healing miracles and casting out demons has turned out to be one of her greatest disappointments in life.

Matters came to a head when he couldn’t account for three condoms which she had left in the house but found missing on returning from Moshupa, her home village.

A packet of morning after pills she had also left was found empty.

“Rather than answer question on what had happened to the missing items, he has chosen to file for divorce,” she revealed.

Relating the background to their relationship Olerato explained: “We got married in 2011 but I did not move into the marital home until four months ago when I quit my job as a Health Promotion and Education Technician in Lobatse to join my husband in Maun.

Immediately after moving in, all hell broke loose,” she claimed.

“I found two women whom the pastor addressed as ‘sisters’ from church living in the same house.

The arrangement did not sit well with me, especially when I realised that these sisters did all the wifely duties.

I felt like a stranger in my own house while these women carried on with cooking, cleaning, doing my husband’s laundry and God knows what else.

“He also had a tendency of watching television with them and they would be giggling and laughing only to keep quiet whenever I joined them.

My husband would leave pretending to suddenly get busy. He treats these “sisters” much better than his wife, that much I can tell you.”

As if flirting with her husband in front of her was not enough, Olerato said she was shocked that the “sisters” knew more about family finances and affairs than her.

The 27-year- old mother of one said that her husband side- lined her in most decisions involving the family money.

“I would wake up and a family car would be gone and a few days later it would be replaced by a new one and he wouldn’t say a thing to me.

Our Audi Q7 just disappeared and a Mercedes Benz E500 appeared without an explanation and I was expected to shut up and be a good wife,” Olerato fumed.

She further disclosed that there were times her husband would go with the ‘sisters’ for late night prayers leaving her behind.
“In fact he told me that he was going to spend only 30 minutes per day with me since family was not that important to him.

My role he said was to treat him like an angel if I wanted the marriage to work.”

When she finally succeed in evicting the sisters, her husband brought in yet another ‘sister’ called Lorraine and told her that the woman was a “prayer warrior’ who needed to be accommodated by him despite persistent rumours that the two had had an affair.

For his part Prophet T. P. Elias said that it was true that he lived with some sisters at his house but it was for training and security reasons since the sisters handled church money.

Regarding the late night prayers, he said that it was not only sisters but brothers too attended the sessions.



“I left my wife behind to look after our child, but I did my best to treat her as my wife.

I admit that I failed her somehow,” he said.

The 28-year-old prophet dismissed as ‘just rumours’ the allegations over his alleged love affair with ‘sister’ Lorraine, who had moved into his house despite his wife’s vehement protests.

He claimed that he related with her just like any other church member.

Asked if he didn’t think that as a pastor it would be his duty to honour his marriage vows T.P Elias said: “I have prayed long and hard, even on top of a mountain and come to the conclusion that she was the wrong woman for me.

She hasn’t turned out to be what I expected her to be so I am divorcing her.”

Asked for a comment Lorraine said she did not want to be seen to be giving the aggrieved wife’s baseless story credibility.

“I am innocent. I was among the 20 people chosen for training as prayer warriors based on the commitment demonstrated by our daily attendance of prayers held at the church and motivated by our love of God.

That’s all I can say.”

    Ao shems… feeling sorry for you Olerato. This is indeed a wolf not a man of God. I suspect he was born outside the boarders of Botswana and he used you to gain citizenship. May God curse him

    Where does the pastor work? At the church? Robbery, then being a tramp! How gullible are our people to take little they have and give it to these scam masters? When will people realize that God never asked for any of this fashionable form of worship that puts material things and wealth ahead of everything else? This is how the devil tempted Jesus from what we learned at school, using material things and earthly riches to get him to commit sin!

  10. Chris M 2014/03/11

    He claims to have powers and wants to tell us he got marriage wrong? What a liar! If God truly exists, these thieves will have a lot to answer for and those falling for them will have no excuses! What a sick shame!

  11. Miss -O 2014/03/12

    No matter what pple say against the Man of God, He is a true Man of God, Its just a shame for the wife to spread lies! God shall punish you! never do this to a Man of God,all Batswana pointing and labelling the Man of God, yu ll rot and burn in Hell, Elias is a tru servant of God!

  13. cheerful 2014/03/12

    Olerato seems to want to save her marriage but the husband is doing just totally the opposite despite having a child with her
    “I have prayed long and hard, even on top of a mountain and come to the conclusion that she was the wrong woman for me.” Which mountain top did he pray on????
    The so called sisters are doing all the chores that Olerato should be doing as it is her husband dont the sisters have their own homes where they can live???? VERY VERY STRANGE SET UP

  14. Chris M 2014/03/13

    He is praying hard to the devil who says go on and divorce your wife! There is nothing here to be divorcing about if you’re a true man of God! No woman would come to your house without your wife’s knowledge and approval! You are this together! A true man of God should know what marriage is all about and how to keep it strong. This is your typical player! Not pastor! Aren’t pastors reconciling couples whose marriages are faltering? Come off it!

  23. salim ahmed 2014/03/24

    maybe we should luke at scriptures, divorce is not allowed in the bible unless in the case of adultery,if the pastor has caught his wife in adultery then he can divorce but if he did not then he must not,if he goes on and divorce the bible says he can not marry again if he does he is also committing adultery together with the woman he marries.

    There is different between an anointed man of God and an anointed player. Jesus said in Matthew that not everyone who says Lord Lord shall enter the kingdom of God, they will come to me and say haven’t we casted out demons in your name, haven’t we prophesied in your name, and i Jesus will say unto them i never knew you go away from me you evil doers. Live for Christ and pursue Holiness and all things shall be well with you.
