Prophet T.B. Joshua has said the prophecy attributed to him that Malawi Vice President Saulos Chilima will win in May is false.
The development follows news making rounds on the social media, WhatsApp in particular, that Prophet TB Joshua prophesied that Chilima will win the coming May 21 polls.
The fake prophecy claimed that God has chosen Chilima to be Malawi’s new leader. It added that Malawi will become a rich and developed country under Chilima and will also be able to help its neighbours.
However, according to a statement by Malawi’s Emmanuel TV partners linked to the SCOAN leader, the prophecy is a work of UTM propaganda.
The partners, in a statement published in the Daily Times, said prophetic massages from Joshua are communicated through official channels which include Emmanuel TV.
They added that Joshua has never prophesied that the Malawi vice president Chilima will win the elections.
“Emmanuel TV Ministries would like to respond to the messages circulating on the social media particularly on WhatsApp claiming that the Man of God, Prophet TB Joshua has made a prophecy on Malawi Elections.
“The Man of God has not made any prophecy regarding specific persons on Malawi election and therefore any messages circulating on social media do not come from SCOAN or it’s official channels,” said the statement from Joshua’s Malawi partners.
It said SCOAN has not sent anybody as a representative and has not established a branch in Malawi adding that anything regarding the ministry will be communicated through those official channels until a representative and a branch are established.
The Emmanuel TV partners have further advised Joshua’s followers not to treat the messages circulating as true before getting confirmation from SCOAN.
Malawi24 could however not validate the authenticity of the Daily Times advert and identity of people who paid for it.
