“The ANC in the North West condemns in the strongest possible terms the shameful and disgusting behavior of the pastor who was caught with his pants down during a live Zoom church service. This behavior is not only unbecoming of a man of the cloth but also goes against the teachings of the Bible and the values of our society,” Legoete said.
“We call on the church to take decisive action against this pastor, including his immediate dismissal from his position. Such behavior cannot be tolerated, and we urge all religious leaders to ensure that their conduct is beyond reproach,” he added.

We need more transparency and accountability in our religious institutions to prevent such incidents from happening in the future,” another person wrote.

Currently, there are no laws that govern the conduct of religious leaders, and many people have called for the government to intervene to ensure that such incidents are prevented in the future.
