Malema in Nigeria to visit prophet

2013-08-14 11:35

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.

      Tebogo Dipico - 2013-08-14 12:18

      Im voicing my view, i guess it takes nothing to do that

      Michael Wilson - 2013-08-14 13:18

      He is the guy with enough courage of his convictions not to hide behind some fake profile. Who are you EFF cadre, aside from just being a hypocrite? Why are you too scared to show yourself and take responsibility for the things you spout?

      Oki Vosloo - 2013-08-14 15:47

      The god of money, Joshua will only "perform" if there is money on the table.

    All I see in these comment are Brainwashed fellows, who don`t even know where we heading to, in this current state of affairs. What a pity people have lost their sense of understanding and humanity, too much TV entertainment, I guess the social Engineers are succeeding.

  • Jacqui Daane Van Rensburg - 2013-08-14 12:42

    Miracle healings and prophecies?. In this case he will need all the talent he has, and then some.

  • Niel Dino - 2013-08-14 12:44

    Hold on to hope folks, in the short term at least, as nothing worked out for Tsvangirai. That is all we can do at this point!

  • Christina Setloboko - 2013-08-14 14:40

    may God open your eyes Malema and give you the answers you deserve.

  • Adrian Baillie-Stewart - 2013-08-14 14:46

    Perhaps there's a link to Mr Malema's visit to Nigeria and tonight's Bafana Bafana soccer match against African champions Nigeria in the annual Nelson Mandela Challenge at Durban's Moses Mabhida Stadium?

  • Kenneth Maimane - 2013-08-14 14:48
