I predicted South Africa’s xenophobic attacks – TB Joshua

T.B. Joshua at a miracle session

Ikechukwu Njoku

A video has surfaced showing Nigerian pastor, T.B. Joshua, warning South Africans of a “youth revolt” in their nation which would result in deaths of “certain people”.

The clip, uploaded to Joshua’s popular YouTube channel Emmanuel TV, says the controversial cleric prophesied about the deadly xenophobic attacks spreading across South Africa on Sunday 28th July 2013.

“In the nation, South Africa, we should help them in prayer because I am seeing youth revolt,” the clip quotes Mr. Joshua as saying. “It will be very serious. A situation where youth will come out and… you learn that there is a protest. Some people were killed – certain people.”

Mr. Joshua’s prediction made the front cover of South African newspaper-based City Press newspaper in August 2013 when Julius Malema, the fiery leader of South Africa’s Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), visited his church in Nigeria for “spiritual blessings”.

The clip was posted alongside a message from Mr. Joshua to South Africans.

“If we fail to see that there are powers that cause people to be bowed down in bondage, we are going to fight the wrong battle,” he wrote, in a statement posted on the Nigerian pastor’s official Facebook page, followed by over 1.5 million people.

He then proceeded with a prayer for “calmness” in South Africa. “I pray for my nation, South Africa. As Jesus stood in the boat and commanded the storms to be calm, I stand in the midst of the storm in my nation, South Africa and I command the storm, wind and waves to be calm, in the name of Jesus! I speak calmness to my nation, South Africa, in the name of Jesus!”

The recent spate of xenophobic violence has spread to different South African cities, with thousands of foreign-owned shops forcibly closed and their owners seeking refuge in makeshift camps.

Five immigrants are said to have been killed, including a 14 year-old boy. Horrifying images and videos have surfaced online showing locals burning foreign nationals and looting their shops.

The violence erupted shortly after a purported statement from the Zulu King, Goodwill Zwelithini, calling on foreigners to return to their countries as they were causing economic “inconvenience” to locals.

T.B. Joshua’s television station, Emmanuel TV, is especially popular in South Africa where thousands of Christians annually go for “pilgrimage” at his church, The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, in Lagos, Nigeria.

  • Chris1408

    This tuberculosis Joshua needs his head examined. Something is seriously wrong with him

  • Wähala

    This clown should be ashamed of himself for taking advantage of negative events to attract undue attention to his fake church. Expect him to claim he predicted the strange epidemic ravaging Ondo State with multiple deaths. A cultist clown who couldn’t see his own ceiling crashing on him always prophesizing thru his anus. Useless tout… Mtchewwwwwww!

  • MoreYouLookLessUc

    I be think say na only Bola Children dey smoke something. I even doubt Obama’s claim that he has retired from this chimney business, at least going by his erratic behaviour during the times Nigeria dey look for weapons. Now, E be like Tope too don dey ‘Chinmneyrize’ secretly.

    Pls stop disturbing people with this ur prediction nonsense. Why did you not predict the aircraft that you claim flew over your Shurch before the building collapsed and killed people? Abi you no no say more people die for your Shurch than xenophobia don kill?

  • Phillip

    …and he couldnt predict that a terrorist will win elections in Nigeria with back up from Boko haram

    • Salako

      …and he couldnt predict that product of baby factory will failed woefully in Nigeria with back up from militants.

      • Ole

        Thank you my brother. And he could not predict that just suddenly, the “almighty Dezani” will be crawling to seek audience with Buhari

        • Ahmad

          …and he couldn’t predict Orubebe will try in vain to re enact June 12.

      • King Carlos


    • Ifowodo

      Thank you Parley!
      … and he couldn’t predict that the usurpation of the traditional throne of the Oba of Ilorin by the Fulani Emir will be eternal…much as he couldn’t predict the infinite subservience of the Yoruba West to the Hausa Jihadist North. …and he couldn’t predict, that the Yorubas will be so scared of Buhari’s threat of spilling blood possibly by beheadings much so that they would all vote one way for the award winning terrorist.

  • Eagle eye

    Pastor or poster? A great liar…

  • Ashibogu

    I cannot understand why this guy is not behind bars. I just cannot understand!

  • Omo Akinkanju

    Who do strange videos of this man’s prediction always surface after the incident and NOT before. This man is surely the biggest 419ner to ever existed on this planet since its creation. Meanwhile, Premium Times, why do you block people’s comments from your site? You think you can write nonsense about innocent people without allowing others to counter you and reveal your falsehood ? You can only block peoples comments but you can never block the truth. Useless people!

  • boliatepa

    You also predicted that Jonathan will win the election that he lost. What happened to your juju pot?

    • Tunsj

      He surely did. God please save us.

  • Layo

    This guy is a fraudster.

    Ogbeni pastor, you are nothing but a big fraud and shame to Nigeria. You will continue to predict negativity. Mtcheeeeeeew

    • Tunji Olarewaju

      Help me ask the charlatan o!

  • amzatkola

    Pastor Joshua, please, save the world of these predictions. There are loathes of challenges the world is bedeviled with which a true man of God should preoccupy himself rather than churning out prophesies which mostly serve no purpose except to ‘play’ God. Almighty God is the only one that has the capacity to determine what tomorrow looks like. Pastors, all of the world,including Pastor Joshua are only exploiting the gullibility and Godlessness of depressed and frustrated people across the world to make mind boggling wealth.

  • Ukpaka

    This MF needs to go and answer to the parents and family members of those that died in his church instead of constantly predicting doom. I wonder why he did not see the collapse of his church building. Nobody should be providing space for this dude to make this silly remarks.

  • Nigerian

    An then what? Bullshit !!!!!!!! So many other people predicted same. Should people be worshipping them all? Go find something else to do.

  • OmoLasgidi

    Na so so doomsday predictions. No solution, sowing fear into the people so they can run to them for solutions!

  • Ahmad

    I predicted that APC will not present a Muslim/Muslim ticket. I predicted that Namadi Sambo will be Jonathan’s running mate. I predicted that APC will not get 25% votes in Bayelsa neither will PDP get 25% votes in Katsina. Yesterday i predicted that several vehicles will play the third mainland bridge in Lagos and it came to pass. I also predicted that Moslems will attend the Friday prayers between 1-3pm and several Christian will attend mass on Sunday. I predicted that…

    • Ade

      Your a better prophet than TB Joshua,

    • Tunji Olarewaju

      I predicted that you are a predictor. Lwkmd o!!!

    • King Carlos

      ooosheyyyyyy omo mi…prophet aiye!

    • El-batuta

      Your predictions are clearer and more certain.

  • G4

    This is just becomming too funny, his predictions are worthy of a comedy sketch show.

  • Caleb o

    I just hope this man will also predict him self going to hell.Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.1 John 4:1

  • Caleb o

    Am so glad that Nigerians are now thanks to this election we now know the prophets of doom who speak without God talking to them.

  • Lala

    Will be so glad if the in coming government can put this charlatan out of business.

  • Otile

    I like the man of God, Pastor Joshua and all that, but his nebulous prophecies are nothing to write home about. Myself, I can predict that there will be serious attacks and blood will flow in some areas of Jos and some people will lose their lives. How about that?

  • ferdyokwu

    Since the collapse of your church (or is it coven?) you’ve lost relevance among true worshippers of the true God. get lost!

  • Omotolaaraujo

    An Orangutan has more credibility than this Con artist! A lot of people were killed in his lousy building. He should be in prison.

  • Rommel

    Banquo says to Macbeth,
    “…’tis strange; and oftentimes to win us to our harm the instruments of darkness tell us truths, win us with honest trifles, to betray’s in deepest consequence” (Act I, Scene iii, lines 122-126)

  • GbemigaO

    There is a large probability that there would be youth riot in SA in 2013 when Malema was at logger head with Zuma . That is common sense not a prophetic declaration !
