“I’m told there is a man in Nigeria called Joshua and he is saying that Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe and Peter Mutharika will die before April 1,” he said, referring to an evangelical preacher called TB Joshua.
“Let me tell you, Joshua… you will fail. What you did in 2012 will not happen again this year,” the president told a rally in the capital Lilongwe.

In 2012, Mr Joshua reportedly predicted the death of a president of an unnamed southern African country. Mr Mutharika’s brother, Bingu, who was president at the time, did die within the predicted timeframe, giving the prophesy strong currency in Malawi.

Mr Mutharika did not say when or where Joshua made the latest prophesy.
In January, the preacher made a televised prophecy, telling his congregation to pray for the leaders in southern Africa, saying: “End of February to April this year, peculiar months for Southern Africa.”
But Mr Mutharika questioned Joshua’s credentials as a prophet, pointing to the collapse of a guesthouse in his sprawling Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos in September 2014, which left 116 people dead, mostly South Africans.

“Why did he not foretell this tragedy?
“This all shows that he is a liar. He just wants to raise money,” said Mr Mutharika, who is in his mid 70s, pledging to be around in 2019 for the next presidential elections, and in also 2024, when or if re-elected, he will wrap up his last term.
Mr Mutharika came to power in 2014 after defeating Joyce Banda.
Mrs Banda, who succeeded Bingu Mutharika, made several visits to the Nigerian headquarters of Joshua’s church and once described the evangelist as her “spiritual father.
It should be noted that Joshua’s joins a long list of soothsayers who have predicted the death of that continent’s despots.  Last year controversial Malawian prophet, Austin Liabunya  re-stated his earlier prophesy on Zimbabwean President, Robert Mugabe who he predicted would not live beyond December 31st, 2015. Liabunya’s prophecy which went viral on Social Media earlier that year was the subject of intense debate in Malawi and Zimbabwe as the days to Mugabe’s proclaimed death approached. It never came to pass. He later claimed that he had faced routine death threats once he delivered the prophecies of doom on Presidents Peter Mutharika and Robert Mugabe.Liabunya had said “Mugabe’s biological clock will not tick beyond this year (2015) ” after which Zimbabwe will be “restored” to be one of the richest countries in Africa, adding that First Lady Grace Mugabe “will never win in Zimbabwean politics” and had simply joined politics to “protect her ill-gotten wealth,” for which she would be soon humiliated.
