Malema visits TB Joshua

JOHANNESBURG - Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema is set to follow in struggle stalwart Winnie Madikizela-Mandela’s footsteps — by visiting Nigeria’s foremost charismatic preacher, TB Joshua.

In a statement on their Facebook page, EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said Malema and a delegation of fellow leaders will go on a “spiritual visit to meet and create friendship with this son of Africa and his congregation and ask for blessings for the journey ahead”.

Joshua, who heads the Synagogue Church of All Nations (Scoan), is listed by the Forbes website as one of the five richest pastors in Nigeria.

Madikizela-Mandela was interviewed in 2011 on Joshua’s television channel, Emmanuel TV, after her visit to Scoan in which she praised the church.

Other former visitors include Zimbabwe’s former prime minister Morgan Tsvangirai, late Ghanaian president John Atta Mills, Malawi President Joyce Banda and King Goodwill Zwelithini.

Joshua is known for his prophecies — some of them political — and faith healing.

Sportspeople who claim to have been healed of injuries at Scoan include rugby player Jaco van der Westhuizen.

Scoan claims Joshua has successfully predicted events in the lives of those who attend his church services.

He predicted the late Mills’ electoral triumph in Ghana in 2008 and François Hollande’s victory in France last year.

According to Wikipedia, Scoan also has a rehabilitation programme for “armed robbers, prostitutes, political thugs and militants from Nigeria’s volatile Niger Delta region”.

Joshua visited South Africa last year — where Scoan also has branches.

Malema’s Nigerian journey starts today and ends on August 15.

Malema as a political thug and an armed robber,I guess he had gone there for a rehabilitation programme. And indeed he appeared on scoan TV Sunday yesterday and was amazed to see this thug there.

Josh tells the truth ask Tsvangison if reports we glean from other websites are true. The man was told that he will never rule Zimbabwe(according to reports) and I wonder why he is pursuing the issue, if those reports are true.
