Malawi president rejects TB Joshua’s prophecy – ‘I’m not about to die…why did you not foretell Synagogue Church tragedy?’

Malawian President Peter Mutharika on Sunday attacked Prophet TB Joshua over an alleged prophecy that he would die before April 1, state television reported.

“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 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. In 2012, Joshua reportedly predicted the death of a president of an unnamed southern African country.

Mutharika’s brother, Bingu, who was president at the time, did die within the predicted timeframe, giving the prophesy strong currency in Malawi. Mutharika did not say when or where Joshua made the latest prophesy.

In January, Joshua reportedly gave a televised prophecy, telling his congregation to pray for the leaders in southern Africa, 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 in September 2014, which left 116 people dead, mostly South Africans. “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 reelected — he will wrap up his last term.

Mutharika came to power in 2014 after defeating Joyce Banda. Banda, who succeeded Bingu Mutharika, made several visits to the Nigerian headquarters of Joshua’s church and once described the evangelist as her “spiritual father”.



  1. Many Nigeria’s are not Christian but claim to be, respect some prophecy if truely he said so and stop arrogant words over man of God

  2. We should stop this obsession about this “man of God” mantra lest we go astray. It will really be interesting to hear TB’s response regarding whether or not he foresaw the collapse of his building & if he did, how come he did’nt do anything to avert it.

  3. Why didn’t he just pray for the man rather than coming out to say it in public. Can’t wait for the day that Nigerians will open their eyes to see that most of these pastors are fake. All they ask for is money! money!! money!!!. I’ve never seen anywhere in the bible that God requested for money to heal people.

  4. Left or right, TBJ will win the game of this “Prophecy”.

    On April 1st, this is what will happen:

    If Malawian President died before then, TBJ will say “I had prophesied”.

    IF Malawian President did not died before then, TBJ will say “APRIL FOOL! “

  5. These man of God should be very careful of what they say, even if prophet TB Joshua av seen what he claimed , to my little brain I think he should have sent a letter to the person with some prayer chapters, not bragging about it.

  6. Are you sure Prophet TB Joshua predicted death of the Presidents? Stop crcifying the prophet before he confirms that he said that publicly. It is not right to predict death of a fellow human being publicly. If you truly see it, call the man and come up with praying and fasting programme to avert any disaster. It will definitely be averted if it pleases God. Even Hezekiah’s death was averted. It is not right to say anybody will die. Jesus did not say damaging and fearful things to anybody. It may be seen as a strategy to create fear for the purpose of getting money to avert it. Furthermore, Prophets should not say negative things to others because they hve fasted and prayed for a long, and their words often, not always, carry authority. It is obvious that the anointing for healing and deliverance in Prophet TB Joshua is great indeed. Prophets dont see all things. That is why the Bible says, prophesies shall fail.

    • Ade as much as I agree with you on his anointing for healing and deliverance, the question is the source. In reality shamanism seems to be the order of the day amongst some of these prophets. Power seems legitimate but lacks the essence of Christ. Jesus Christ remains our example and if his teachings and way of life is not enough for our end time prophets then they need not claim to be Christ’s servants.
