FUNDISWA SAID he promised her a car, marriage and goodness from his holy sperm. But that was before she fell pregnant.
WHAT SHE GOT WERE EMPTY PROMISES AND THE FADING DREAM OF A NEW CAR.
Fundiswa Lekhula from Ipopeng kasi in Mangaung is 21 years old, five weeks pregnant, and claims a pastor tricked her in love.
She claims the 50-year-old pastor, Attie Kgware, promised to marry her and buy her a new car.
“I was a member of Your Choice Christian Ministries church and in January the pastor started telling me my boyfriend was bewitching me. I got confused and he took advantage of me because I trusted him as a man of God.”
She claimed he told her mother he wanted to marry her. “We started dating and he promised me a new car – before, during and after we had sex.”
She claimed she was studying industrial psychology but Attie made her stop.
“He said he would sell his bakkie to settle my university fees. He wanted to leave Bloemfontein and go to Tlokwe, where he wanted me to enrol in a nursing course,” Fundiswa said.
“Now I am pregnant and he doesn’t want anything to do with me.”
Another pastor, Vusi Masiya, who is a car salesman, said Attie told him he wanted to buy a car for Fundiswa.
“I asked him what was happening between him and the young woman and he did not answer me. I know that he is a married man and that makes me ashamed to be a pastor,” said Vusi.
Attie’s wife, Bogolo (47) said Fundiswa was just the church secretary and had never been in a relationship with her husband.
Attie told Daily Sun: “If she is pregnant, why does she go to the media? She should contact her uncles and they must write a letter to the elders. She is angry that I did not sell my bakkie. I have never slept with her.”
Fundiswa’s mum (40) claimed: “Attie said his marriage was sour and he wanted to marry my daughter.”
Daily Sun is in possession of many text messages allegedly exchanged between the pastor and Fundiswa.
In one message, Fundiswa asked the pastor if he stalked all the members of his congregation and he replied: “Only you.”
Under a picture of her in a swimsuit, he wrote: “I love that lady.” She replied that she loved him too.
One message from the pastor read: “For me you are the best. Thank you and may God bless YOU MORE.”
Daily Sun spoke to the pastor on the same cellphone number used to send the text messages.
