Nigerian Prophet Temitope Babatunde Joshua warned South Africans in July 2013 of a ‘youth revolt’ in their nation which would result in deaths of ‘certain people’ a video evidence has shown.
The video clip which was uploaded to Joshua’s popular YouTube channel, Emmanuel TV, show the spiritual father prophesying the violent xenophobic attacks spreading across South Africa on Sunday 28th July 2013.
In the clip the prophet said “In the nation, South Africa, we should help them in prayer because I am seeing youth revolt. 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.”
PM news says Joshua’s prediction made the front cover of South African newspaper ‘City Press’ 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 prophet in a message on his facebook page on Friday morning prayed for calm to be restored in South Africa. He said:“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. 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!”
The Nigerian government meanwhile has revealed that Nigerians living in South Africa are yet to be attacked. This was made known by Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, the Minister of State II for Foreign Affairs.
Despite the claims by Obanikoro, the house of representatives has called on the government to take action by returning Nigerians living in South Africa. The call was made by Nnenna Elendu-Ukeje, Chairperson, House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs and Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Diaspora.
