At 43, Kgosi Gasebalwe Seretse of Pilikwe is a man under pressure to bring his tribe a Mohumagadi (queen). Author, former journalist and pastor at Kings Highway Church in Pilikwe, Seretse is a very intelligent traditional leader who also boasts good looks. He tells The Midweek Sun that he is very much single and believes that at the right time, he will marry. His take is that one must be prepared both emotionally, spiritually, financially, mentally and physically. However, he says that it is wrong for one to marry because others are doing it. He’s observed that people nowadays divorce because of finances. “As a man, you must be prepared to provide for your family and not just that but to lead them as the high priest,” he says.
The chief states that it is very important for men to be ready before tying the knot. “Emotionally, do you know how to solve issues without running away from home or oppressing your wife? Physically, are you aware that your body belongs to your wife and spiritually, you may meet someone who is less mature than you in the Lord or vice versa? Are you ready to grow her patiently?” he asks rhetorically. Interestingly, he believes that the right age to marry is 25-35 years or else one is a ‘lehetwa.’ He says that if one is late, one must do it the latest at 45 years old.
Does this mean he is a lehetwa or that he is eyeing someone to make mohumagadi soon? “Marriage shows order and that a man is organised. It builds communities and nations. At the right time, I will marry,” he says, also adding that he has always believed in having children within wedlock. Describing his ideal woman, he says that she has to be God fearing, genuine and beautiful.
Church distances itself from Pastor who livestreamed his suicide
Head Pastor at Metsimotlhabe Holiness Union Church France Koosimile has distanced his church from Phenyo Godfrey who committed suicide live on social media a week ago. Speaking to this publication this week, Koosimile said Godfrey was never a Pastor at Holiness church as assumed by many.
Godfrey, who goes by the name Bishop P Godfrey on social media, allegedly shot a video of himself committing suicide on Sunday evening. According to a few friends and those close to Godfrey, the deceased was from Molepolole and has been identified as a pastor at Holiness Union Church in Metsimotlhabe.
On the evening of Sunday last week, he went live on Facebook and proceeded to put a rope around his neck. He was seen in the short video hanging by the neck until he took his last breath. TO READ THE FULL STORY, BUY THIS WEEK’S (11 August 2021) PRINT EDITION OF THE MIDWEEK SUN AT A STORE NEAR YOU.
