Cape Town - Social media users have once again taken to Twitter to mock Nigerian Televangelist TB Joshua after he tried to explain his false prophecy regarding the just concluded elections.

The Synagogue Church of Nations (Scoan) founder predicted last week that Democrats leader Hillary Clinton would win the US presidential election in a "narrow victory" against her Republican rival Donald Trump.

His prediction, however, fell flat when on Wednesday last week Trump was declared victorious.

On Sunday, Joshua said that his prophecy was not off the mark, adding that people needed "spiritual understanding to be able to interpret it".

Joshua said this during a service at the headquarters of his church in Lagos.

"There is nothing controversial about the prophecy. It is human beings that are controversial... We are not on the same level (of spiritual understanding)." 

See his post on Facebook below.
