Fans of Lesego Lefatshe of Hlomela fame, commonly known as Mlesho, are not pleased with him for leaving his baby mama for a slay queen. Three years ago, he came to The Midweek Sun with the mother of his two children, Dolly Matlapeng, gushing about his love for her and how he wanted to marry her. They were lovey-dovey in front of the cameras and Mlesho said she was her blessing. Now, to the amazement of his fans, Mlesho has a new girl in the picture and she is all over his Facebook timeline. He tells The Midweek Sun that he left Matlapeng three years ago because their relationship was not working. He did not want to say much about their break up save that he takes care of their children, aged five and three. “It just wasn’t working and we decided to go our separate ways but my children come first,” he says. However, he was excited to talk about his new girlfriend Resego Moiya, whom he reveals he met last year around August, contrary to what his friends in the music industry say that he actually cheated on Matlapeng with the new beauty. Some of his followers call her a slay queen and ask where Dolly is and why he deleted her photos from his profile. He says that he met Moiya at a local church which he visited and fell for her instantly. “She is very kind and loves God. She doesn’t talk too much and she is not a party girl,” he says, adding that he decided to start slowly with her for the sake of privacy. He says that he wants to marry Moiya, Bcom Banking and Finance graduate from Ba Isago University and spend the rest of his life with her. “I love her with all my heart and I just want to make her happy,” he says, quickly defending that he is not a heartbreaker.
‘Hlomela hit changed him’ Matlapeng was in class and could not be interviewed but her twin sister Chichi says that Mlesho started changing when he came up with a big hit Hlomela, which enjoyed both local and international airplay last year. “He started becoming too busy for her, always on the road, with girls flocking him. On the other hand, he controlled her by always demanding that she stays home with the children,” she says. Chichi explains that Mlesho and Dolly had been on and off before their final break-up. She states that the two broke up after the birth of their son and later got back together with Mlesho begging Dolly to take him back, and that she fell pregnant with their second child shortly. Nevertheless, she says that Mlesho takes good care of their toddlers. “He can even give out money for them,” she says. Chichi also says Mlesho had dated someone else before Moiya, implying that the latter is not the cause of Mlesho and Dolly’s break up. Dolly is Diva Vebrok’s dancer and also a student at Kgatleng Brigade. She has previously attended Gaborone Universal College of Law. Mlesho dated Slizer before Dolly.
Babymama speaks Dolly Matlapeng, the mother of Mlesho’s two children would later call and say that the Hlomela hitmaker is a bad father who has neglected his children. She says that Mlesho has made her a laughing stock with her neighbours as she constantly asks them to stay with the children. She is schooling in Mochudi and her twin sister Chichi is the one who looks after the children but when she is busy, she has no choice but to ask neighbours to look after them, especially the three year-old daughter. She says that sometimes she even misses school when there is no one to help her with them. “Our daughter has even lost weight and when I ask Mlesho to take her to school, he tells me that he does not have money,” she says. She says that she decided to take their five year-old to school and that despite it being a government day care, the Hlomela artiste pays his school fees after she has begged him. She states that Mlesho left him when their daughter was still a month old. “It was when Hlomela was well received and played all over the country and he started ignoring my calls and avoiding me,” she says, adding that he would shout at her when she asked him about their relationship and children. She however says that she saw him last Saturday when she was performing with Franco and they greeted each other. She thanked her twin Chichi and artiste Vebrok for always helping her and supporting with the children. In response, Mlesho denied being an irresponsible father. “I’ve been taking care of my kids since they were born,” he said.
VACANCY: President of the UDC
Botswana Movement for Democracy (BMD) President, Advocate Sidney Pilane says Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) does not have a President.
He revealed this week that UDC leader, Advocate Duma Boko was given the leadership of the coalition on a temporary arrangement. Advocate Pilane who was addressing the media this week, following the expulsion of his party from the UDC stated that in the buildup to 2014 general elections it was agreed that Advocate Boko should be presidential candidate for UDC, an arrangement that ended at the time when the UDC lost the 2014 general elections.
“It was decided that Botswana National Front (BNF) should be given the presidency so that Advocate Boko could be our presidential candidate. The late Gomolemo Motswaledi of BMD was to be his running mate. We made this arrangement in preparation to taking over state power.
So, all that has passed, we contested and lost so it is all in the past,” said the BMD leader. He stated that constitutionally, the UDC has no president because the president has to be elected during the UDC elective congress. Advocate Pilane pointed out that UDC according to the Constitution should hold its congress every three (3) years.
He stated that even all the members of UDC National Executive Committee have to be elected at the congress and as it stands, “there is no president or Vice Presidents because they were not voted into those positions.”
Advocate Pilane said instead of building the UDC brand their colleagues at Botswana Congress Party (BCP) and Botswana National Front have resorted to petty issues. He told the media that the leadership of the two parties have taught their members to insult BMD leadership and its members on social media and any other forum.
He had no kind words for the BCP, calling the party a divisive party that thrives on insults and divisive tendencies. He said the BCP leadership had encouraged its foot soldiers to use social media to insult him and members of the BMD.
According to Advocate Pilane, these are some of the things that have made the two parties remain in opposition for far too long without even coming close to toppling the ruling party. He described them as dishonest people who will plunge the country into chaos and that is why Batswana do not want to give them power.
VIDEO: A Gaborone hotel Prophet caught in the act
In a matter that closely resembles that of a South African Cabinet Minister, Melusi Gigaba’s masturbating video clip, a visiting Zimbabwean Prophet, Ronald El Melchizedek of Altar of Grace this week denied that he has been sending nudes to church sisters and demanding same from them.
In fact, the ‘man of God’ has earned himself the name, ‘Botswana’s Omotoso’ by girls that allege he has sexually exploited them. Pastor Timothy Omotoso is a Nigerian clergyman accused of sexually exploiting over 30 young girls from his church in South Africa.
“He is an Omotoso and even though they hide it at his church, some of us have received messages from him asking for our nudes. Actually, he has asked for my nudes several times,” says one church sister.
The Midweek Sun has gotten hold of a 34 seconds video clip of the youthful prophet playing with his manhood. Looking like he is in a hotel room, the man stands fully naked in a muted video that, depicts him speaking and teasing the recipient. In a standing position, he starts off by caressing his manhood, giving it a close up and ends up lying on the bed, facing up.
At least three young women say they received the video from the prophet and that he usually asks for nudes from them. One of them actually says he has been pestering her, demanding to have sex with her. “He likes to send me messages of how horny he is for me. But again, he likes asking for nudes from women.
Even married women at his church have fallen victims of his sexual harassment. I left the church because he disgusted me by doing such things yet calling himself a man of God,” she says.
The woman however says that Melchizedek, a Zimbabwean who holds services at Gaborone Hotel when he is in the country, is a man of accurate prophecies. “He moves mightily in the prophetic but he likes harassing church sisters. It is known in his church. He is married but controlled by the spirit of lust,” she says.
The Prophet responds
Melchidezek told The Midweek Sun that he was aware of the video of him doing the rounds through WhatsApp, but was quick to label the whole thing a scam.“Yes we are aware. Those are scammers from Benin who hacked into my wife’s Facebook account and phone and stole our videos and pictures. So they wanted to blackmail us and we refused, that is why they are doing that.
It is just an effort to harm the work of God but God is in control,” he told The Midweek Sun. He would not be drawn into responding to, or even discussing the allegations levelled against him by church sisters, but instead gave this reporter a mobile number of a person he said was his wife.
The said woman confirmed that the video was posted by scammers. “That was done by scammers. We have reported them to Benin police,” she said. She however would not give the name of the police station nor go into further details.
This incident follows on last week’s revelations reported by this publication, where several girls spoke anonymously about pastors, prophets and ‘men of God’who were using them sexually in church. Many were uncomfortable to reveal their names, forcing this paper to also conceal the identies of the accused churches and pastors involved in the dirty acts in the name of God.
