A popular Nigerian Prophet T.B Joshua, founder and leader of the Synagogue Church of all nations has ignored to respond to Malawian President Peter Mutharika accusations that he is fake evangelist and instead has praised Tanzania President John Magufuli.
Mutharika publicly attacked Joshua over an alleged prophecy that he would die soon.
“Let me tell you, Joshua… you will fail. What you did in 2012 will not happen again this year,” Mutharika said in the capital Lilongwe.
In 2012, Prophet Joshua reportedly predicted the death of a president of an unnamed southern African country. Bingu wa Mutharika’s brother, Bingu, who was president at the time, did die within the predicted time frame, giving the prophesy strong currency in Malawi.
Since Mutharika questioned Joshua’s credentials as a prophet, the preacher has not responded.
However, in apparent jibe to Mutharika, the Synagogue prophet has hailed President Magufuli of Tanzania – the neighbours of Malawi.
“A leader should rule in righteousness and in the fear of God so that he can be like a torch for everybody, a shining example for everyone to see,” said T.B Joshua in praising President-of-the-moment Magufuli.
“When one rules over people in righteousness, when he rules in the fear of God, he is like the light of morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning, like the brightness after rain that brings grass from the earth,” the Nigerian preacher said citing Holy Bible verse (2 Samuel 23:3-4).
Reports says that way before Magufuli’s run for presidential office he had frequently visited Joshua in Nigeria with his family.
But Mutharika attacked Joshua wondering why he not foretold the collapse of a guesthouse in his sprawling Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos in September 2014, which left 116 people dead.
“This all shows that he is a liar. He just wants to raise money,” said 76-year-old Mutharika, pledging to be around in 2019 for the next presidential elections, and in also 2024, when – if re-elected – he will wrap up his last term.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
