Tsvangirai visits TB Joshua

HARARE - Zimbabwean opposition leader, Morgan Tsvangirai has paid a visit to popular Nigerian prophet Termitope Balogun Joshua (TB Joshua), raising speculations that he is seeking divine intervention after suffering a heavy defeat to rival President Robert Mugabe in the July 31 disputed poll.

Tsvangirai was seen yesterday on the free-to-air Emmanuel Television sitting at the front row during the morning and afternoon sermons at TB Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations (Scoan) in Nigeria.

The former premier was sporting a bright red African attire shirt and he sat on a wooden chair, which is usually reserved for VIPs.

TB Joshua prayed for the beleaguered MDC leader at around 3pm. The prophet placed his hand on Tsvangirai and prayed for him.

In the midst of the prayer, Tsvangirai sat down and rose again as if overwhelmed by the man of God’s words.

The former trade unionist sneaked out of the country on Saturday heading to Nigeria.

This is the second time that Tsvangirai has visited the Nigerian prophet after he went to Scoan in September 2010.

Luke Tamborinyoka, Tsvangirai’s spokesperson, could neither confirm nor deny that his boss had paid a visit to TB Joshua.

“Tsvangirai is on a diplomatic mission in Nigeria. I am not aware that he went to see TB Joshua. Maybe he found the time and went to his church. But is there anything wrong with him going to church? If he truly went there, it shows that we have a God-fearing leader,” Tamborinyoka said.

Tamborinyoka refused to reveal the person his boss had paid a visit to in Nigeria insisting that the former premier was on a diplomatic mission.

“I cannot tell you anything about the diplomatic mission. But as a party, we made it clear that we are going on a diplomatic drive to try and convince the region that the elections were stolen. In the next coming two weeks, you will see Tsvangirai going to different countries on diplomatic missions,” Tamborinyoka added.

Tsvangirai’s visit to TB Joshua has raised speculation that he is seeking divine intervention to understand how he could have lost so dismally when it seemed he was extremely popular with the masses.

Mugabe romped to a landslide victory in the July polls beating his closest rival Tsvangirai with a 27 percent margin in the presidential race, while getting a two-thirds majority in Parliament.

Tsvangirai and his party claimed that the elections were rigged, but Mugabe has denied this insisting that he won freely and fairly.

Regional bodies who observed the elections— the African Union and Sadc—said the elections were free and peaceful. However, they refused to give the fairness stamp on the elections saying a number of issues could have undermined the whole process.

In the wake of the defeat, Tsvangirai has been brushing off increasing calls within his party to pass the baton, but his spin-doctors say he has the full backing of all the organs of the party, and his mandate runs until 2016.

A number of senior African politicians and businesspeople have visited the popular Nigerian prophet including Home Affairs minister Kembo Mohadi, minister of State for Manicaland province Christopher Mushowe, former Zanu PF legislator now MDC member Tracey Mutinhiri, Zifa president Cuthbert Dube, former South African president Nelson Mandela’s ex-wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela and Malawian president Joyce Banda.

Tsvangirai is expected back into the country today where he will continue with his national tour of “poll crime scenes”.

The former premier last week descended upon Masvingo—where he suffered the heaviest electoral loss. He held two separate meetings with representatives of eight districts.

Tamborinyoka told the Daily News that his boss will return to Masvingo this week to meet people in districts that he did not visit. From there he is expected to tour other provinces in the country.

GOOD ADVICE: Do something for yourself, for your family. Don't waste your time talking politics while? others are enjoying their lives with money without politics. See how this Zimbabwean poor woman became a millionaire just by buying and selling solar panels to the people in rural areas/villages so they can have electricity easily and very cheap. Very interesting. Go to SOLARTECH.CO , not dot com, to see? the methods and companies she was using. SOLARTECH.CO , not dot com. Wake up Africans

Very good Mr Tsvangirai,TB Joshua is the man.There is nothing sinister about visiting the Man of God.Keep it up Mr Tsvangirai.

josefa chinotimba - 7 October 2013

Why go to Nigeria when in Zim alone we have over 20 000Prophets? Asi chiiyi nhayi? President works with local prophets but Tsvangison always think anything foreign is Good,no wonder why he bootlicks whites!!!

Hapaz Hapanyengwi - 7 October 2013

boo hoo!

duez - 7 October 2013

hapaz, the reason why morgan likes prophet joshua is that he tells people especially leaders what God is saying not what those leaders want to hear. did you hear our prophet wutaunashe. remember at one time i hear prophet joshua told the premier he will not "win" the election and i our leader is doing well by acknowledging what God says even when it is hard for him. I am just thinking ' are some funny demons responsible for our troubles getting a little bit worried about morgan"s visit to nigeria. i think so.

sammy - 7 October 2013

President Tsvangirai is FREE to visit a church of his choice here on earth. Why do you want to tell him where to go? Did he steal anything from Zimbabwe on his was to the renowned Prophet TB Joshua? President Tsvangirai is a true man of GOD!!!!*

Mudhiniwe - 7 October 2013

the gospel is 4 everyone Tsvangirai included........it's his choice 2 decide which church to go

The issue is President Morgan accepts that there is God. Imi vamwe muchiita zvemashave nekuuraya muchideura ropa. Fortunately in this world and on this earth, good will triumph over evil.

Mugabe trusts Nikuv and in the might of his liutenants whilst in Mdc we trust in the Lord Almighty

Kandious - 7 October 2013

You do not need to go to far lands to seek God when he is around. Mr. Tsvangirai must repent and seek forgiveness from the people of Zimbabwe for peace of his soul.

Makotsi - 7 October 2013

Makandiwa, Angel, Chipunza, Utawashe, Bismark, Guti, many more local Godly content should have been visited, local spirits are dealt with local prophets and man of God

the possibility is that what you think is gilead might not be gilead at all. but the truth is there is balm in gilead. but which one.

sammy - 8 October 2013

Why should you remember God after you have failed, should you had put God in the beginning, maybe you might be singing a different song now. Frankly speaking Mr Tsangirai, how could you have expected God to guide you into winning the elections when you supported same sex marriage, the very issue that made the same God to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. Unless you have repented, you are pathetic!

Don Comforts - 8 October 2013

EX-PRIME MINISTER TSVANGIRAI IS LOST SOUL. HIS EUROPEAN SUPPORTERS SHOULD BE EMBARRASSED BY THEIR POLITICAL BAFFOON. THE SO-CALLED MAN TB JOSHUA IS A FAST BUCK CHRISTIAN PROPHET (PROFIT MAKER).

Rabison Nyundo ( THE HAMMER) - 8 October 2013

Chero ari baffoon asi ma Zimbabweans tamama.

Maita Manyuka - 9 October 2013

Saw the video footage, very sad guys, SAVE passed through Mbare on his way and those ZANU PF thugs sold him a bottle of KRANGO as cough medicine thats why he fell down when the prophet touched him...Trust ZANU PF to do something sinister like that.

Julie Mfumfu - 9 October 2013

Mugabe akamboendawo KuRome kuna Pope but all of you did not say anything. Mugabe akaenda kuMapostori kwaMutare but all of you did not say anything. Just like MDC suspenzi White man Party yavakufa asi at the same time ZANU pf suspenzi Dr Kareke Party is made is strong ....MaZpf makafa Brain.

maths - 10 October 2013

Which is better to visit TB Joshua, a minister of God or a N'anga yediesel in chinhoi. Go Tsvangirai go we are still with you till we conquer ZANU PF

Ivhu Kuvhu - 11 October 2013

Maths: Mapostori are not 61% of the country, we dont care what he went there to do, why are you afraid for him to visit TB Jo, u afraid kuti anozotaura spiritually kuti Zpf rigged big time.

KACHANDO - 11 October 2013

anyone can chose a spiritual of his choice, whether n'anga, prophets or satanism its a free world. having so many prophets in zim does not mean they are the best. Its like going to Singapore for treatment when we have so many doctors here. Its a free world

JMATTS - 12 October 2013

@Hapaz Mugabe who likes everything local goes to Singapore for an eye cataract that can be removed by Guramatunhu and yet you keep quiet. Bona went to University of Hongkong and that is local for you.

Sabhuku Mutengesi - 12 October 2013

Others are calling themselves don Comforts yet they do not want anything zvevarungu, maybe I am lost pane mutupo unonzi Comforts here muno muZimbabwe?

Give Ipayi - 12 October 2013

While, I would not be stressing the visit of the MDC leader to Prophet T.B. Joshua, I want to comment on a recent newspaper article written by the ex-governor of Abia State (H.E. Chief Orji Uzor Kalu) who was among the AU Election Monitoring Committee headed by Nigeria former President - Chief Olusegun Obasanjo. In the report by Orji, he stated why the elections were won and lost by both Zimbabwean leaders. Tsvangirai (on return to his country) should concentrate on winning the common people, who form the majority of the voting crowd, especially the farmers. The conclusion is that, until this is done, it would be a tough call to win elections in that country that have been supposed monopolized by "High Chief" Robert Mugabe, who might remain president till his end of days. Once this is done, the MDC leader can now leave the rest to God to finish off the good works. Wishing the MDC "Oga" the best at the next elections and be guaranteed that you have my vote.
