Tanzania President Magufuli and TB Joshua

An exclusive video has been released to YouTube detailing the visit of Nigerian ‘Prophet’ T.B. Joshua to Tanzania and revealing further details of the pastor’s closeness to the East African nation’s new pace-setting President.

In the clips, Joshua is warmly welcomed at the airport by Tanzania’s President, Dr John Magufuli, who is a described as a ‘regular visitor to The SCOAN and an Emmanuel TV partner’.

Subsequently, the video shows Joshua being shown around Magufuli’s personal house and meeting his extended family, including his aged mother

The new President’s eldest son testifies in the clips that he received ‘healing’ from a severe respiratory problem after prayers from Joshua in 2013, no longer needing the breathing device he once relied upon.

Other clips reveal the Nigerian cleric’s extensive meeting with Tanzanian opposition leader Edward Lowassa and key members of his party where he is seen offering prayers for them.

At the period of Joshua’s arrival in November 2015, the nation was tense after the election outcome was disputed by Lowassa.

However, peace and progress have been the watchwords of Magufuli’s first few months in office, his anti-corruption drive and impressive work ethic hailed worldwide.

The hash tag #WhatWouldMagufuliDo has trended on social media across Africa in the light of the new president’s whirlwind start and lead-by-example approach.

After 100 days in office, a national poll revealed that over 90% of Tanzanians approved of Magufuli’s presidency.

Comments on the YouTube video, uploaded by Emmanuel TV’s official channel, were replete with requests for the controversial cleric to visit their respective nations.

The clip comes days after another Emmanuel TV YouTube video purportedly showing the deliverance of a young man who ‘turned into a dog’ went viral.
