A resident pastor and educator at St Peter’s Combined Christian School in Mohlaletsi village in Sekhukhune District, Limpopo, South Africa, has been suspended for allegedly assaulting a female student.

The resident pastor, identified as Diketso Matibidi, allegedly flogged the Grade 12 learner for being late to the Sunday church service on the 12th of November, 2023.

According to reports gathered by VerseNews, Diketso called out the student in front of the entire congregation and then allegedly proceeded to beat her with a sjambok, a type of whip commonly used in South Africa.
