You can’t make this stuff up, just read the story here ……
Peter Mutharika, the president of Malawi, on Sunday attacked a popular Nigerian television evangelist over an alleged prophecy that he would die before April 1, state television reported.
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.
Nigerian preacher TB Joshua: Predicts the death of Zimbabwe and Malawi presidents before ‘All Fools Day’
“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.
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.
