TB Joshua: Prophet to Meet Zim President, not Crusade

Harare - Be warned: Nigerian Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua will jet into Harare for an official visit only with the President ED Mnangagwa - and will not hold a crusade, contrary to some rumour peddlers bent on fleecing unsuspecting Zimbabweans who follow him religiously.  

Though his arrival date has been concealed, his facilitator Jossey Mahachi confirmed the visit.

“Prophet TB Joshua will be coming to Zimbabwe in a few days from now and I am highly excited about it as it will be his first time to set his foot here.

“His visit is a courtesy call to his Excellency President Emmerson Mnangagwa. He is not coming to hold a crusade like what is being said on social media. Those stealing from people should desist from doing that or the wrath of the law will catch up with them,” she said.

She however, remained mum on finer details. 

“I am sorry I can’t give you more details about the visit but all I can say is Zimbabwe has been remembered.”

Mahachi is credited for having facilitated the visit of top Nigerian businessman Aliko Dangote.

TB Joshua was born on June 12, 1963 and is a Nigerian Pastor, televangelist and philanthropist. He is the leader and founder of The Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN) - a Christian organisation that runs the Emmanuel TV television station from Lagos.

Joshua is known for his popularity across Africa and his online presence with 3,000,000 fans on Facebook and over 700,000 YouTube subscribers. Described as the "Oprah of evangelism" and "YouTube's most popular Pastor", Emmanuel TV is Africa's largest Christian television network and the most subscribed Christian ministry channel on YouTube with videos amassing more than 300 million views.

He has been awarded various accolades, notably receiving the Officer of the Order of the Federal Republic (OFR) by the Nigerian government in 2008 and being voted the Yoruba man of the decade by Pan-Yoruba media outlet Irohin-Odua. 

He has been called one of Africa's 50 most influential people by Pan-African magazines The Africa Report and New African Magazine. As of 2011, according to Forbes, Joshua was Nigeria’s third-richest pastor, although the claim was immediately denied in a statement by the church.

According to Joshua’s official biography, unusual circumstances surrounded his birth. He says that he spent 15 months in his mother’s womb and narrowly avoided death after a quarry explosion near his house sent rocks through its roof just seven days after his birth.

It is also alleged that Joshua's birth was 'prophesied' 100 years prior. Joshua, then known as Balogun Francis, attended St. Stephen's Anglican Primary School in Arigidi-Akoko, Nigeria between 1971 and 1977, but failed to complete one year of secondary school education.

In school, he was known as "small pastor" because of his love for the Bible. He worked in various casual jobs after his schooling had ended, including carrying chicken waste at a poultry farm. He organised Bible studies for local children and attended evening school during this period.

Joshua attempted to join the Nigerian military but was thwarted due to a train breakdown that left him stranded en route to the military academy. Despite not having a church assembly in Zimbabwe, Prophet TB Joshua has a huge following of Christians who watch him through his television channel, Emmanuel TV.

Many Christian believers around the world, Zimbabwe included, have travelled to his church, Synagogue Church of All Nations for healing and deliverance.

TB Joshua is one of the most sought after preachers in Africa and beyond. He is credited for having boosted religious tourism. - Online Sources
