Renowned Nigerian Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua, popularly known as TB Joshua, has predicted the fall of corrupt African leaders in 2014.
In a televised message delivered on New Year’s Eve at the Synagogue Church of All Nations (Scoan) where large crowds thronged to usher in 2014, Joshua said African political leaders who thrive on corruption, depriving their people a decent living, will fall by the way side.
“Many of the key leaders in political parties will go down in 2014,” he said.
“If many key leaders go down with 2014, what will now happen in 2015?
Pray for 2015 to be fulfilled. The beginner is not the owner but the finisher.”
“What will happen in 2014 will result in the correction of the corruption because many corrupt leaders will go down in 2014,” said Nigeria’s most famous and wealthiest charismatic preacher.
Joshua’s prophecy comes as Zimbabwe has been ranked among the most corrupt nations in the world.
According to Transparency International 2013 corruption index — which shows that bribery and abuse of power remains a scourge in most societies around the world — Zimbabwe gained six places to 157 out of 177 countries among the most corrupt countries in the world.
The country is perceived to be highly corrupt, after scoring 21 points in the 2013 index out of a possible 100. It scored 20 points in 2012.
Joshua, whose many forensic prophecies about events and people have proven correct, said 2014 would see many political parties facing an acid test of leadership renewal.
“There will be a leadership tussle on who will lead and who will be presidential candidate,” he said. Daily News
