Johannesburg - EFF leader Julius Malema is reportedly in Nigeria, where he is visiting a popular preacher and prophet.

eNCA reported on Wednesday that Malema and an EFF delegation are visiting TB Joshua to receive blessings for the journey ahead. Joshua is widely known for his miracle healings and prophecies.

"We all seek divine intervention, we all seek blessings of spiritual leaders, and it happened that this time we came to TB Joshua… and it shouldn't be seen to be any controversial activities," he told the news channel.

Malema would not elaborate on what counsel he received from Joshua.

Praise for Mugabe

However, he did speak of his desire to emulate Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe, and congratulated the Zimbabwean people on the recent elections.

"They have made their wishes very clear and we want to congratulate President Mugabe because we are happy that he has returned the land to the people and Zimbabwe will be one of the fewest African countries which is truly owned by Africans," he said.

The Economic Freedom Fighters announced the visit on their Facebook page last week, saying Malema and fellow leaders would 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".

City Press reported that other visitors to Joshua have included Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, King Goodwill Zwelithini, Zimbabwe's Morgan Tsvangirai, late Ghanaian president John Atta Mills and Malawi President Joyce Banda.

Joshua is listed as one of the five wealthiest pastors in Nigeria, and heads the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN). He visited South Africa last year, according to City Press.
