Is Jacob Zuma the subject of TB Joshua's prophecy?

11 April 2016, 14:10

Johannesburg - Just four months after Nigerian prophet TB Joshua made a prophecy related to southern Africa, his words seem to be coming to fruition, with his followers fingering President Jacob Zuma as the subject of his prophetic message, Nyasa Times has reported.

According to a January 3 broadcast of Emmanuel TV, a Christian network founded by Joshua, the cleric stated that a southern African leader would find himself in a "peculiar" situation between the months of February and April.

Joshua's message sparked widespread debate in Malawi, with many suspecting that President Peter Mutharika would come to pass before April 1.

President Mutharika even went as far as attending a night vigil in mockery of the Nigerian prophet. Mutharika  lashed out at Joshua, claiming that he was "not about to die".

Several of Joshua's followers have since fingered South African president Zuma as the subject of the prophetic message, with many claiming that Zuma's hold on power seems to be flailing as time progresses.

Zuma's troubles began with a damning corruption trial, resulting in a March 31 verdict made by the Constitutional Court against the embattled Statesman.

According to South Africa's Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng, Zuma "failed to uphold" the country's constitution, ordering him to pay back state funds used to make upgrades to his personal home in Nkandla and resulting in several opposition parties calling for his impeachment.

In addition, Joshua had prophesied that the fluctuating Rand would eventually "stabilise", a prediction which has seen investor confidence in the country lifted due to an announcement indicating the successful issuing of a foreign dollar bond.

TB Joshua remains one of the most popular clerics in Africa, rated 13th most famous prophet worldwide, with 2 million fans on Facebook and almost 350 000 Youtube subscribers.

The prophet has come under fire in recent times, however, after claims that he had predicted the terror attacks that impacted Brussels on March 22.

As founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Joshua gained notoriety in after a building collapse at a SCOAN property on September 12, 2014, resulted in the deaths of 116 people.
