Malawi President Peter Mutharika is scheduled to attend a night of prayer event organised by the local clergy on Friday April 1 in Blantyre following an alleged prophecy by Nigerian ‘prophet’ T.B Joshua that Mutharika would die before April 1, 2016.
Mutharika recently dubbed Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, as a ‘fake man’, following an alleged prophecy that the Malawi leader would die.
The President did not say when or where Joshua made the latest prophesy, he however recalled that in 2012, the controversial Nigerian preacher reportedly predicted the death of Mutharika’s brother, Bingu, who was president at the time, and died within the predicted time frame, giving the said prophesy strong belief in Malawi.
“Let me tell you, Joshua… you will fail. What you did in 2012 will not happen again this year,” Mutharika said recently in the capital Lilongwe.
Organisers of the night of prayer event said the clergy will be asking God to bless Mutharika with more wisdom to run the country .
During an all night prayer , faith leaders will also ask God to “bless the country” on several aspects, including peace, political stability, saying the Almighty was the only one with capacity to solve problems afflicting mankind.
The country is experiencing brutal killing of albinos, same sex relationships, plundering of government resources is continuing, wanton cutting down of trees that has been one of the contributing factors of climatic change and abortion, among others.
Oganisers said the night of prayers will be led by pastors from different Pentecostal churches to be spiced up with some worship songs and speaking in tongues.
They are also open to each and every well-meaning Malawian even those whose church is not part of those leading.
