Ghanaian Christians love their pastors. This is especially not surprising when one considers that ours is a country with a strong Christian majority.
Most church leaders are charismatic personalities who cannot be separated from the flock they lead. This makes the leaders respected sometimes even beyond the confines of their church.
However, some of the church leaders have been found in 2018 to have fallen foul of the law. Others have had bad publicity for somethings that they have said.
YEN.com.gh. compiles the most embarrassing incidents for some of the most popular pastors in Ghana.
