Pastor’s alleged mistress acquitted in sex scandal case
A pastor’s alleged mistress last week won the case brought against her by the preacher’s embattled wife.
Mpho Marea Sebutlana had dragged Keabetse Mauco before the Taung Customary Court accusing her of wrecking her marriage.
She was also claiming to have caught her husband, Pastor Letty Sebutlana , 35, who is the leader of the Praise Tabernacle Church in Mogoditshane, in a compromising position with Mauco’s.
Testifying before Taung Court President, Nyakale Linchwe, she said on the day in question she was on her way to the Glen Valley BDF camp, where her husband was staying when she saw his car parked in Mauco’s yard.
She said when she got to the house she knocked and got no answer. She then tried the door and it opened and she found her husband lying on a couch next to used condoms ogling at Mauco who was in a G-string.
Mpho also told the court that before she caught the two, allegations of their affair had become the talk of their church.
“I warned my husband to be aware of Mauco’s intentions when she joined our church. I had in fact cautioned my husband about women before,” she told the court.
However, Mauco denied being caught in a compromising position with her alleged pastor lover adding that on the day in question Mpho found her in the kitchen in a wrapper and not in a G-string.
For his part the man at the centre of it all denied having an affair with Mauco and said he had only gone to talk to her about the allegations of her being the cause of the marital problems between him and his wife. Incidentally the couple is going through a divorce case instigated by the pastor.
In his judgement Linchwe said Mpho’s evidence did not carry much weight as she was the only witness to the incident.
He said Mauco’s evidence was corroborated by that of the pastor and as such carried more weight.
Meanwhile Mpho intends to appeal the ruling.
