Prophet Walter Magaya of the Prophetic Healing and Deliverance (PHD) Ministries has tearfully revealed that he failed his late spiritual father, Temitope Balogun (TB) Joshua before his death.
The popular but controversial Nigerian evangelical preacher died on Sunday. His church has been tight-lipped regarding the cause of death.
Speaking to his congregants, a tearful Magaya said that TB Joshua had assigned him the task of procuring two elephants, one zebra and two giraffes because he wanted to open a zoo in Lagos, Nigeria.
Magaya told the congregation that he managed to secure the animals after approaching officials from the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority (Zimparks).
I went on my way, went to the parks, did whatever I could, secured the animals.
And I was so excited because I was giving him what he wanted.
Magaya said that he ran into hurdles when he tried to ship the animals to Lagos, as the Nigerian Embassy was not processing visas. The only exceptions were for humanitarian and diplomatic visas.
