NIGERIAN preacher TB Joshua’s Emmanuel TV has circulated a video showing how he prophesied the death of Malawian President Bingu wa Mutharika.
TB Joshua, who leads the Synagogue Church of All Saints, told followers on THREE separate occasions that an African head of state would die in the month of April.
Malawian President Bingu wa Mutharika, 78, died suddenly from a suspected heart attack last Thursday.
A video showing TB Joshua predicting his death, which was posted on YouTube, reveals how the controversial preacher inexplicably saw it coming.
On three dates starting on February 5, he revealed that:
# The President was not from West Africa
# The President would die in April
# His death would be on a Thursday
Meanwhile, wa Mutharika’s death has given birth to internet conspiracy theorists who are speculating that TB Joshua cast a spell on him to help Vice President Joyce Banda – who is a convert to the Synagogue Church of All Saints – ascend to the presidency.
Banda – who was a sworn rival of Mutharika – started consulting TB Joshua in 2009 after her husband suffered a stroke. She claimed that her husband – who had lost his voice – later made a “miraculous” recovery after TB Joshua prayed for him.
As she took over power to serve the remainder of Mutharika’s term until 2014, some were wondering whether she had anything to do with her rival’s demise.
The internet has been buzzing since TB Joshua’s prophecy was revealed, with opinion split about the significance of his predictions.
But now his supporters are fighting back with the release of the video which is preceded by the message: ‘God is Still Saying Something’.
The first clip shows TB Joshua speaking on February 5:
“April. What I’m seeing on the board, I cannot stand here and begin to tell you this April this is what is going to happen, but I’m praying.
“When it’s too close and I cannot do anything about it I will say it, but I’m still talking to Father. But if I realise there is nothing I can do about it, and it is too close, I will talk.
“Whatever name you call me, call me. I will talk. We should pray for one African Head of State, when I say President, against the sickness that will take life, sudden death. Sickness for a long time, being kept in the body for a long time.
“God showed me the country and the place.”
On March 18, TB Joshua returned to his prophecy:
“You have to pray for the whole world. Is it Thursday of this week, or next week or three Thursdays coming? But what happened on Thursday?
“Before I come out to say something in your midst, I’ve been praying and praying.
“Which country? God said ‘pray for the world’.”
In his final prophecy delivered on April 1, and watched by a worldwide audience on his TV channel, TB Joshua said: “Last time I said we should pray for a leader of a country and people gave different meanings to what I said. And I want to say God will forgive you all.
“But you cannot stop me from saying what God put in my heart. What I was saying is very close now. Do you want to hear more? It’s very, very close now.
“Whether you like it or not, this is what I have seen. Pray for your leader. The person concerned, God showed me, but I’m praying to see whether this can be changed. Pray for your leader. The head of a nation. I’m seeing a sudden death, this is as a result of sickness.
“Quote me. The Lord showed me the country, the person is within Africa, so pray. This is not even in West Africa.”
