Pastor Letty Sebutlana

A cheating pastor involved in a love triangle case before the Taung Customary court has offered P3000 as a bribe to keep his allegedly sleazy sex life from becoming public knowledge.

As details of the affair emerged, the pastor who is the head of the Praise Tabernacle church in Mogoditshane, offered the cash incentive to the only reporter covering the case.

In a desperate attempt to retain his credibility as head of the church, love cheat Pastor Letty Sebutlana offered a cash incentive to keep the story of his infidelity out of this newspaper.

Assuming an ‘impoverished’ journalist could not refuse the P3000 bribe, he made his move without realizing his conversation was being recorded.

The offer followed a court case in which his embattled wife Mpho is suing Kebapetswe Mauco, who is a member of her husband’s flock, for wrecking her marriage.  Sebutlana is the head of the Praise Tabernacle Centre, Mogoditshane, a church he founded in 2009 after leaving the Apostolic Faith Mission.

The 35-year-old pastor first approached this reporter last Wednesday at the Taung customary court minutes after Nyakale Linchwe adjourned the case to the next day.  On a drive to Mochudi he said the case was nothing but a plot by his wife and her family to destroy his good name.

“If this story gets published it will do a lot of damage to my name.  I want you to help me, but not for nothing,” the man of God said.

DISGUSTED: Mpho Sebutlana

To gain time he was then told that there would have to be a consultation with the newspaper’s editor before a decision could be made. It was at that meeting that a plan to record the conversation and expose the bribe was made.

The next day his alleged mistress and himself gave evidence dismissing as lies Mpho’s testimony that she had found her husband at her rival’s house lying on a couch next to used condoms, whilst ogling Mauco who had stripped down to a G-sting. After the proceedings Pastor Sebutlana again offered to drive this reporter to Mochudi, suggesting he waits for him at the Taung bus stop so as not to arouse suspicion.

On the trip to Mochudi he once again implored that we do our best to keep his name clean and protect him from the malicious intents of his wife and in-laws. He promised: “I do not have a lot of money, but will get something soon. I am in the process of selling this car and I can give you something from the proceeds. I am also expecting some money from a cousin,” he said.


An arrangement was made to meet last Saturday when he returned from business in Francistown. The meeting eventually took place on Tuesday when we made contact in the presence of another Voice colleague. He did not want us to talk in a very public place and agreed that we drive to St Joseph’s College and back.

Unaware that the conversation was being recorded, he again repeated his proposal. He offered P3000, pleading that he would have offered as much as P100, 000 if his financial status was not that of a ‘church mouse.’

He claimed he would produce the cash as soon as funds were made available from the imminent sale of his car, adding that by helping him we would be creating a ‘profitable brotherhood.’

“We are people and you never know what may come in the future. One day it might be one of you guys needing help from me,” he said as he dropped us back at the office believing we would call to tell him we had succumbed to the temptation of his offer.

Meanwhile Taung Customary Court President Linchwe is due to deliver his judgment in the case today.

Okay, Granted, the guy doesnt qualify go nna MORUTI, but under the same circumstances which of you guys wouldnt opt for not appearing on some paper for cheating.Its bad to cheat, but then again its even worse to have your kids and their peers see their daddy on papers ka boaka. And the bonus is that the lady herself is beautiful. Maybe, just maybe she is the one yo o offerileng the apple who knows. even Adam couldnt resist.


Moruti…..bribery… pastor still need delivery from the darkness

there is totally nothing wrong wth dating at your work place.

Let us pray.
Father in heaven,we call upon you to forgive us all our sins and help us repend from our sinful ways. This i pray in the name of the mighty high,AMEN.


God heard your prayer and i trust that all will be well and forgiveness is granted. I was at the International Women’s Day yesterday and mind you the messege was WOMEN ARE THARI YA SECHABA, so women be blessed and God forgive!


Well dis are kind of guys who are not true worshipers bt rada con-men. wa utlwa dipuo tse a aneng a di bua. “hee moneelo ware”, “cousin erile etla mpha bokana”, “koo rekisa koloi”,”nkabe ke go fa P100 000 my acc e rile”, le ene mmega dikgang o ne atla bonna koditshweneng.

Father plis forgive us, we dont know what we are doing!


I thnk Mpho shud not take ths negative comments seriously coz di tla mo thubela lelwapa. Alrite the guy has made a mistake and who of us has not made a mistake and Mpho pliz look at Letty as husband and not as a pastor and yU have to 4give him because U made a vow. And ths is the tym 4 Mpho to show dat indeed 4giveness exist.


Apparently he has worn the case agaist his wife. Ga ana boammaaruri moruti yoo. O kgonne go direla mosadi wa gagwe boferefere mme e seng modimo. God knows the truth. He is an adulterer. Mauco is a fornicator. He should have told the poor woman that he no longer want her as his wife instead of playing with her feelings like this. He is a liar too.


every human being has got feelings sometimes we turn to forget dat in marriage we can face difficulties da wife refusing to do it with you for no reason i try to understand her for about a month or so thn whn u try to aproach her again samething so dats why most husbands get cought redhanded coz they wil be thirsty for the things even ladies can stil do it with ada men then go bo go twe go nale kwa a e bonang teng sesole.lets try to stick to our vows and respect each other. only the devil… Read more »

Learn form the life of David. He was a great man and fell in that state. May the grace of God be with the man of God, and let God heal your life and family. I believe you will see things in another way, that indeed the flesh cannot submit to the law of God and neither can it be. If truly Faith Tabernacle was from above, it will stand and pass through this situation. And to everyone, let us be careful especially in associating ourselves with miracle workers. Lets’ trust Jesus not people. Amen. May God forgive us all… Read more »

ija!dilo tse dingwe kana o kare tsa di filimi.


This is the kind of shephard that the Lord Almighty spoke about in the book of Jeremiah, He said,’woe to you shepherds who destroy and scatter my sheep.

the way the Pastor Letty’s flocks are going to react/respond towards this issue is the same way they will be destroyed, but to you flocks in the book of Phillipians it says imitate what is right cos the good things are from God

anyway we are all human beings and no one is perfect,Pastor humble urself before God, confess and repent. God is mercy He will forgive you.
