Nigerian  televangelist pastor and founder of the Synagogue, Church of All Nations, TB Joshua has come under fired from social media users for a failed prophecy on the US elections. Joshua had earlier prophesied on his ministry’s Facebook page that a woman would win this week’s presidential elections. With female democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton going up against republican, Donald Trump, many took the post to mean that Clinton would emerge victorious.

Much to the dismay of his followers, Trump took the election on Wednesday but by then the story had gained so much traction on social media and other platforms many questioned his self proclaimed powers

Joshua’s followers have dug in their heels in defense of their leader calling him an honourable man of God

Joshua is no stranger to controversy after a building owned by his church in Nigeria collapsed, killing over one hundred devotees, 81 of whom were South Africans
