Grace Mugabe’s ex-husband lauds TB Joshua


Stanley Goreraza, an officer in Zimbabwe’s Air Force and the first husband of Zimbabwe’s former first lady Grace Mugabe, has publicly lauded the Nigerian-based Prophet T.B. Joshua, saying other prophets scamming people with “‘anointed’ items from oil to condoms”.

“The main reason I have the utmost respect for TB Joshua is not because he, by God’s power, has performed veritable miracles of healing and countless prophecies, all which gained the attention of some of the top Intelligence agencies in the world, but because his teaching and messages fit into the gospel of Jesus Christ,” wrote Goreraza, who worked for many years in China as a defence attaché, on his Facebook page.

The Zimbabwean, currently based in India, continued that despite not attending seminary or theological school, no evangelist was in the TB Joshua’s league.

“He teaches with love, truth and such great wisdom, all derived from his sincerity, faith and love for the work of God. He delivers his teaching with gentleness enveloped in smiles. He attended no seminary school, has no schooling in theology, yet not one Evangelist, Apostle or Pastor is in his league. Many who claim to be Men of God have tried to copy everything about him but they all fall short”.

Goreraza termed the Nigerian cleric “the most imitated man of God in Africa” yet equally “the most envied and hated by other clerics”.

Many who claim to be Men of God have tried to copy everything about him but they all fall short. He is the most imitated Man of God in Africa and the most envied and hated by other Clerics. They try but fail to be like him because he genuinely is humble and genuinely loves and knows God. He is not pictured flaunting wealth in expensive cars and private jets”.

The Zimbabwean acknowledged that many in pastors and prophets “use his name to lure followers” by “claiming to be his spiritual sons” but the Nigerian always redirected people to God as the title of ‘spiritual father’ “belongs to God”.

“He does not encourage people to pursue riches but a life without sin so that they can be candidates of Heaven,” Goreraza further asserted, adding that, unlike other self-proclaimed prophets, T.B. Joshua “never asks for money from people through endless seeding” but “actually gives money to those in need”.

The controversial air-force officer concluded by reminding readers that the televangelist was the first to introduce “anointing water” which was freely given to congregants.

“Everyone else followed suit and produced ‘anointed’ items from oil to condoms, but for a price,” he surmised.

Stanley Goreraza is a prolific social media commentator, especially on Zimbabwean political affairs, and commands a sizeable following on Facebook. He made headlines when he accused Zimbabwe’s former President Robert Mugabe of ‘stealing’ his wife.



  1. I feel tears down my chin, l wish we can change and come clean before Christ. Surely TB Joshua is on his own league they copied but still they fail. says:

    Let emulate the true man of God.

  2. True, a real beacon of light on the mountain for every body to see..may God keep him for many more yrs.

  3. While I agree with Goreraza on most issues, I disagree with him when he says that TB Joshua is the first to use anointing water. The Catholic Church has been using anointing water for ages and ages.

  4. I agree with you Mr Goreraza,Prophet TB Joshua is a true man of God ihave been following his teachings on Emmanuel TV,he is down to earth he ids different to all other so called prophets.

  5. Congratulations Mr. Goreraza for sharing this truth, such a good report is indeed welcome considering that a lot of negative stuff is published about the ministers of the word of God, particularly the prophetic ministry. Prophet T.B. Joshua is indeed a great man of God who is humble enough to acknowledge that he is not the only one mightily used by God, nor his church the only one. He always acknowledges that there are many living churches, this is indeed a very good report for our time, when most would stand in their pulpits to criticize others.
    We are thankful to God for blessing us, the nations and the world with great men of substance and noble character like Prophet TB Joshua. May God continue to bless and guide him and all His humble and dedicated servants. May we and our children learn from such exemplary leadership ?

  6. i really do support yu,this man he is so different wth othr prophets,even if yu listen to his word,the way he teach

  7. You are very right sir,prophet tbjosua has obeyed the calling of God for his life.he has been called for the nations many lifes out the has been changed by God through prophet tbjoshua it is my prayer that ,God must continues to increase the anointing in his life.

  8. Word of God is true,Pastor TB Joshua live with will never compete with him

  9. I totally agree, may God give Prophet T.B.Joshua many many many years to live, in Jesus Name. Amen

  10. Very very true Mr Goreraza I cherish this man of God Prophet TB Joshua. I have been following his teachings, sometimes I can spend the whole night watching him on channel 390 and he inspired me a lot. To compare him with others is a big mistake. He is totally different. I wish all of this so called pastors should go and learn from this man of God.

  11. Totally agree with sentiments echoed by Goreraza. Prophet TB Joshua is in a league of his own . Well said .
