Young people will start a huge and violent revolt in South Africa – but first, youth leader Julius Malema will receive blessings from the Nigerian soothsayer who prophesied this.
Malema and fellow Economic Freedom Fighters leaders left on Friday to visit Nigeria’s most famous – and wealthiest – charismatic preachers, TB Joshua.
They will pay him a “spiritual visit to meet and create friendship with this son of Africa and his congregation, and ask for blessings for the journey ahead”, according to a statement issued on Friday.
Their visit, which ends on Thursday, comes after Joshua told his Synagogue Church of All Nations congregation on the outskirts of Lagos on July 28 that South Africa could expect a bloody revolt.
“In the nation South Africa, the country South Africa, the nation of South Africa … We should help them in prayer. I’m seeing huge revolt. Huge one. Revolt. And it will be very serious. You pray for your nation, South Africa. Huge. Revolt. The youth will come out, and begin, there will be a huge protest here, shoot, some people are killed. Certain people … some people are killed. Revolt. South Africa,” he said, gesticulating wildly.
The prophesy came alongside predictions of a plane crash in Asia and unrest in his own country.
Joshua, whose church also has a branch in Johannesburg, is famous for his prophesies, faith healing and humanitarian work.
He has landed in hot water before for an unusually accurate prediction of the death of his friend, the late Malawian president Bingu wa Mutharika, last year of sudden cardiac arrest.
There was suspicion about the preacher’s ability to have foretold the event with such accuracy and some have even suggested Joshua had a hand in Mutharika’s death.
Former visitors to Joshua’s Lagos headquarters include Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini, Zimbabwe’s former prime minister, Morgan Tsvangirai, and late Ghanaian president John Atta Mills.
