TB Joshua’s Church Charge $100 For Registration and Healing
Following a Television advert, crowd gathered at the Belvedere Teacher’s College to receive “spiritual healing” from Nigerian preacher, TB Joshua. However things turned around when they discovered that TB Joshua was not going to be physically present. The crowd were advised to reconvene at the Harare Agricultural Showgrounds on Monday evening but they were disappointed to discover TB Joshua was not in Zimbabwe and people traveled 340km to the state capital.
A lot of people were frustrated when they learnt about the fee. According to a member of TB Joshua’s church in Zimbabwe, identified as Chibwe, told the crowd: “The advert on TV was saying that people should come for registration so that they are ready to travel to Nigeria. So please don’t be confused because there is no chaos in Christ.”
The crowd were asked to buy “registration forms” for US$100 each and deposit a further US$2,000 for the trip to Nigeria for an audience with TB Joshua at his Synagogue Church of All Saints which is headquartered in Lagos.
Several Zimbabwean politicians have travelled to Nigeria over the last year for an audience with TB Joshua and among those who have sought TB Joshua are MDC-T leader and Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, Home Affairs Minister Kembo Mohadi and Zanu PF officials Oppah Muchinguri and Chris Mushowe.
