General Overseer of The Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua commonly referred to as T. B. Joshua has visited the South African country, Zimbabwe after he was banned by the former President Robert Mugabe.
The visit of the prophet of God to the country is described as a ‘private visit’.
The prophet, who until now, was banned from the country after what were seen as “false” prophecies against former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe.
T. B. Joshua paid a courtesy call on Vice-President Kembo Mohadi and Minister of Scholarships Dr Christopher Mushohwe.
Acting Information, Media and Broadcasting Services Minister Simon Khaya Moyo told The Sunday Mail that President Mnangagwa could not meet the prophet as he had other commitments.
“We understand some people are spreading false information that we snubbed TB Joshua. I want to make it clear that the President did not snub TB Joshua, he is not a snubber.”
The prophet also use the opportunity of his visit to hold meetings with his ‘spiritual sons’ in the country, which include Zimbabwean prophet Walter Magaya among others.
After landing at Robert Mugabe International Airport aboard a private jet, TB Joshua went to a local hotel, where a number of people were lined up for private discussions with the televangelist.
His visit is believed to have been organized by Brandme International executive director Mrs Josey Mahachi-Agbeniyi, who reveled that Prophet TB Joshua will hold a crusade in Zimbabwe soon.
Mrs Mahachi-Agbeniyi says:
“Prophet T. B. Joshua just wanted to see Zimbabwe. For someone at his level, he would not do so without paying a courtesy call on Government officials. Unfortunately, when he was available, the President had other engagements. He (the prophet) had to rush for an urgent event in Lagos, so he left late Friday night”
