As stated earlier on February 9th 2012, we want to assert that Prophet T.B. Joshua did not mention any name of a person or country, date or time-frame when he prophesied about an African Head of State.
For the last two months, rumours have been spread, speculations have arisen and judgements have been wrongly formed on the internet, the pages of newspapers and in the minds of people.
On 5th February 2012, TB Joshua simply stated that:
“We should pray for one African head of state, president, against sickness that will likely take life. It is a sickness for a long time – being kept in the body for a long time. God showed me the country and the place but I’m not here to say anything like that. I am still praying to God to deliver the president concerned.”
He never mentioned 2 months or 60 days or April 16th or any other date as fabricated by those spreading rumours, neither was any name mentioned.
Then on 1st April, TB Joshua reiterated the prophecy saying:
“Last time I said we should pray for a leader of a country and you people gave different meanings to what I said and I want to say, God will forgive you all. I never mentioned name or time. You can never stop me from saying what God has put in my heart. What I’m saying is very close now. Whether you like it or not, pray for your leaders. The person concerned, God showed me but I’m praying to see whether this can be changed. Pray for your leaders. A head of a nation, I’m seeing a sudden death as a result of sickness. Pray, this is Africa, not even West Africa. Lift up your voice and pray for a leader, that the Lord should redeem our leaders in this continent of Africa. In Jesus Christ’s name we pray. I will continue to bring this issue, when it is too close, the name, the country. Pray for your country, your continent, the whole world. Prayer.”
These prophecies were given live on Emmanuel TV for all to witness. Please do not add to or subtract from the prophetic message. The prophecy was given so that we would give ourselves to prayer. TB Joshua did not state that the event was unchangeable, hence his call to prayer.

And do My prophets no harm.”
