05 January 2016, 19:22
Harare - Popular Nigerian prophet TB Joshua has reportedly predicted that a president from Southern Africa will be left in turmoil between the months of February and April of this year.
Temitope Balogun Joshua, commonly referred to as TB Joshua, made the startling revelation at a church service at the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) in Nigeria on January 3, News Day has reported.
The famed prophet chose his words carefully, saying that the months between February and April of this year would be "peculiar" for the Southern African region.
Although Joshua gained notoriety for his successful prediction of the Malawian president Bingu wa Mutharika's death in 2012, many have thrown shade on his latest revelation.
Skeptics have since recalled two Malawian prophets who also made predictions of turmoil hitting Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, which have since failed.
See TB Joshua make his predictions below:
Kenneth Eagle, a Malawian prophet at the Holy Tabernacle Ministries in Lilongiwe, predicted that Mugabe would not make it past 2015 alive.
In the same breath, Austin Liabunya, also a prophet from Lilongiwe, predicted the same fate for Mugabe. The Zimbabwean Statesman, however, remains alive and well.
Zimbabwean officials have since brushed off Joshua's foresight, with Zanu PF spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo saying that he has more pertinent issues, such as policy matters, to address.
Joshua's predictions were not all doom and gloom, with the prophet giving hope to South African in saying that the economy would recover through the dire period that it is currently facing.
Joshua also warned of severe drought on the country, saying that the worst-recorded food shortages will hit the region this year.
TB Joshua has since advised South Africans to build dams and irrigation systems in order to combat the effects of drought and lack of rain.
The public has expressed skepticism against Joshua's predictions, with many taking to Twitter to air their thoughts and mock the pastor.
