A pastor and educator, Diketso Matibidi has been suspended after he brutally flogged a female student for coming late to Sunday church service.
This event occurred in St Peter’s Combined Christian School in Mohlaletsi village in Sekhukhune District, Limpopo, South Africa.
From reports received by Gistreel, the female student was late and the pastor called her out in front of the congregation to flog her with a Sjambok, common in South Africa.
