TB Joshua is known to thousands of people around the world as a "prophet of God" with healing hands that can cure anything from disabilities to cancer and HIV/Aids. "Divine healing is the supernatural power of God bringing health to the human flesh," says the Synagogue Church of All Nations (Scoan) on its website.
"Thousands who come oppressed with sickness and disease receive their healing at the Scoan... Truly, there is never a sickness Jesus cannot heal."
The prominent people who have gone to Joshua for help include Zimbabwean politician Morgan Tsvangirai, Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema, Malawian president Bingu wa Mutharika, and ANC stalwart Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.
