SA Xenophobia‬: TB Joshua’s Important Message To South Africans

Over 1,000 foreigners in Durban have fled their homes and are now living in makeshift camps, under Police guard.

Violence against African immigrants in South Africa is common, with impoverished locals accusing foreigners of taking their jobs and business.

Rising unemployment amongst black South Africans is fuelling animosity against other African nationals living in the relatively prosperous multi-racial country.

The violence, which broke out in Durban and surrounding townships, has spread to other parts of the country, including the economic capital Johannesburg.

Eight people including a Ghanaian have so far been confirmed dead in the attacks.

Nonetheless, Nigerian famous Pastor T.B. Joshua on his Facebook wall has sent an important message to South Africans.

T.B Joshua in his message hashtag “#‎NoToXenophobia‬ #‎AfricaUnite‬ #‎WeAreOne‬ #‎LetLoveLead‬”

According to him, “If we fail to see that there are powers that cause people to be bowed down in bondage, we are going to fight the wrong battle”.

“I pray for my nation, South Africa. As Jesus stood in the boat and commanded the storms to be calm, I stand in the midst of the storm in my nation, South Africa, and I command the storm, wind and waves to be calm, in the name of Jesus! I speak calmness to my nation, South Africa, in the name of Jesus!” he prayed.
