Malawian President Peter Mutharika on Sunday attacked Nigerian’s television evangelist over an alleged prophecy that he would die before April 1, stated by a television report.

“I’m told there is a man in Nigeria called Joshua and he is saying that Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe and Peter Mutharika will die before April 1,” he said, referring to an evangelical preacher called TB Joshua.

“Let me tell you, Joshua... you will fail. What you did in 2012 will not happen again this year,” the president told a rally in the capital Lilongwe.

Back in 2012 TB Joshua predicted the death of a president of an unnamed southern African country.

Bingu, Mutharika’s brother was president by the time, did die within the predicted timeframe, giving the prophesy strong currency in Malawi.

In January Joshua reportedly gave a televised prophecy, telling his congregation to pray for the leaders in Southern African, saying “End of February to April this year, peculiar months for Southern Africa.”

But 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.

“Why did he not foretell this tragedy? “This all shows that he is a liar. He just wants to raise money,” said Mutharika, who is in his mid-70s, pledging to be around in 2019 for the next presidential elections, and in also 2024, when — if re-elected — he will wrap up his last term.
