Malawi Heat



Leader of the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG), Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, on Monday, spoke highly of Prophet TB Joshua describing him as “great and powerful” amid a scathing BBC documentary that exposed “widespread abuse and torture” by the late televangelist.


“A great and powerful man of God,” Bushiri wrote of his Facebook page. “I love[d] his ministry then, and now even more. His legacy will never be erased. God told me that even books in the future will be written about him and some schools will study about him.


“Those who also love and support his contributions to Christianity, let us give thousands and thousands of likes to this great general - Prophet TB Joshua!”


The BBC's African Eye says it has found “Dozens of eyewitness accounts of physical violence or torture carried out by Joshua, including instances of child abuse and people being whipped and chained.


“Numerous women who say they were sexually assaulted by Joshua, with a number claiming they were repeatedly raped for years inside the compound.


“Multiple allegations of forced abortions inside the church following the alleged rapes by Joshua, including one woman who says she had five terminations.”


TB Joshua died in 2021 and was a charismatic and hugely successful preacher and televangelist who had an immense global following.
