A bereaved family member responds to the ANN7 documentary

The article below is written by someone who lost a family member in the 2014 building collapse. They are responding to the SCOAN propaganda put out by the African News Network under the guise of journalism. It gives some interesting insights into how this “documentary” may have come about.

Firstly I would like to thank TBJWatch for keeping the public informed of the goings at SCOAN, particularly us the families that lost our loved ones in the 12 Sep 2014 SCOAN building collapse.

As you can see, it is a pity that man could behave unashamedly in this manner when there has been loss of lives and limbs. But, coming back to Christianity, if there were people who could stand up and accuse Jesus Christ, the TRUTH publicly, and one person could even be found in Christ’s midst who collaborated with the works of darkness to KILL THE TRUTH, Christ Jesus, how difficult would it be in these days to find a person who would take money to continue speaking against the Truth?


It has been well documented that the “man of gods” from Nigeria hands out cash to people to buy their conscience. Being in touch with other families that suffered the same fate as mine (losing a family member), we know that once a family member sets foot at SCOAN they are given cash, directly from the hand of TB Joshua. It is called a gift. Before we even knew the fate of my late brother, 4 days after the accident, when my other brother and the widow went to SCOAN, they were surprised that the “man of God” never had time to talk to them but only handed a gift to them before they returned to South Africa. It is never said why the gift is handed to people. After all, a gift is a gift, right?

All the families I know and I am in touch with, the only interaction they have with the “man of God” when they went to SCOAN was the moment of gifts hand overs. Otherwise his little people organise tours and brainwashing sessions for the visitors. The tragedy here is the fear the families have of the man which paralyses them from speaking or acting against him. Well…, coupled with the continuous harassment of his little people…

Before the 12 Sep 2015, I had calls from certain journalists who wanted to get information on my family and our position in view of the anniversary. It is at that time that I was informed that SCOAN was organising for “journalists” to go to Nigeria and “see for themselves…”

The thing is, SCOAN had prevented journalists from going to their church since the day of the incident, according to the journalist that I can’t disclose here for obvious reason…All of a sudden, they invite and host journalists and news channels that produce the same material as the ones regularly posted on SCOAN’s site.

Fortunately, I know of journalists that refused to go because they knew exactly what the trip was all about. Such people will continue to uphold the journalistic integrity. It is a shame that ANN7 chose, in the face of the gravity of this tragedy, to take the offer and be a mouthpiece of SCOAN… Leaving the widows and orphans that want the whole truth and justice voiceless… Well, at ANN7 it seems victims don’t deserve a voice, only those who consider themselves blessed because someone died due to criminal negligence of someone else…

We will certainly see what they are position will be when we get to the end of this case and find justice, at least for my brother. I will provide an update of the case once there’s newsworthy progress.

May God bless all the people that submit to Him as channels for the truth to come to light, not only about the sad loss of 12 Sep 2014, but also about His Word and Kingdom.

  1. This is interesting. SCOAN organising journalists?
    ANN7 must just shut down, it’s a mickey mouse organisation.
    We should have had seasoned no-nonsense investigative journalists take up this challenge; someone like Debora Patta. She surely would have taken SCOAN to the cleaners. She would have ripped apart their gimmicks with ease. Or someone like Jacques Pauw whom TB Joshua tried to “give a gift” but he refused it, back in 2001 while he was covering Wium Basson’s trip to SCOAN. Not this unknown shady learner Peter Van Onselen.

  2. What has happened to the psychopath/narsist TB Joshua is to show and expose to the world who he really is and how he goes about doing things.

    When thinking about him, the following verses comes to mind:

    Build Your House on the Rock
    “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell and the floods came and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. 26 And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 And the rain fell and the floods came and the winds blew and beat against that house and it fell and great was the fall of it – Matthew 7:24-27.

      • To tbjw,
        Ha, ha . . . and what about ‘the best is yet to come’ . . . sins or no sins, doesn’t matter. Come to think about it-he is actually a pitiful unsaved person. To carry this blood guilty burden and legacy forever must be hell!

      • Saints all across the world. Let me state some Truth here. The God of the Bible will supply your need but not your greed. These mega-church preachers are charlatans who make all kinds of promises…they are enemies of the Cross and the true gospel of repentance and salvation. They are the ones who are becoming rich…on your hard earned salaries. Stop following them and hanging on their every lie. They use and twist God’s Word for their own financial gain. Read up on what the New Testament says about giving [not tithing]…and not what they teach from the Old Testament scriptures of sowing a seed. That is lies. The apostle Paul teaches us about giving from the heart as the Lord prospers you…not under threat of being cursed under Malachi 3 and other lording over you from false private prophets. Please study the scriptures for yourself and do so not what they put on you as a millstone around your neck.

  3. this issue is really complicated, they family are against the gifts, yet the want to sue the
    ” Man of God “for money, the bible says the time will come for everybody to leave this planet “earth “because is not our home, at some stage everybody will die, how???? no body knows except God, we all not gonna die from sickness, some from accidents, suicide ,murder etc, so what happened at scoan is beyond human comprehension beside that so people are trying to make money out of it, its sad that people are making it a gambling incident

    • @mist
      I think you missed the point. It’s not that the families weren’t grateful for the money, or even (in some cases) desperately in need of it. The point is the only way TB Joshua interacted with them was by giving them money. For a man rich enough to own a Gulf Jetstream, this is a very “cheap” way of dealing with the bereaved families. Why didn’t he sit down and grieve with them? Why didn’t he find out the situation each individual was in and see how he could help? Why didn’t he pray with them? Is handing over cash the only way he knows how to give comfort?

    • Precisely TBJoshuaWatch,

      Money is their answer for any trouble they go through in SCOAN and going out have nice dinner and sit in nice surroundings is their antidote to silence and pacify them. Invite and pay for them to the Mexico Crusade etc. etc.

      Although, I do know that he did pray for and with them because they witnessed that as “a touch from heaven” from his Kundalini knock down “technology” which they think is going to change their lives now.

      Some even claimed they saw their loved ones into heaven. Which is impossible according to scripture, because no-one is there yet, but whatever,

      they just say it because that is what they thought, experienced and believed as in Feeleology and not Theology.

    • Mist no,

      Jesus came so that you could live a life free from shame and regret and walk empowered by His wisdom, principles and God’s Spirit. “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10 It’s almost a really simple equation if not for the deception of Satan. God wants us to enjoy life. “…who gives us richly all things to enjoy.” 1 Timothy 6:17

      They did not come to have life abundantly they were taken away not because God called them but because of negligence from the entire SCOAN and his FALSE PRIVATE PROPHET that did something that God did not order him to do.

      Does God want you to be in good health and have a sound mind? You bet He does. He also wants you do prosper in ALL things. That means your endeavours in life and your relationships. That includes your finances and your career. God loves you. “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” 3 John 1-2

      Psalm 118:16 The right hand of the LORD is exalted; The right hand of the LORD does valiantly. 17 I will not die, but live, And tell of the works of the LORD. 18 The LORD has disciplined me severely, But He has not given me over to death.…

      Psalm 90:10 As for the days of our life, they contain seventy years, Or if due to strength, eighty years, Yet their pride is but labor and sorrow; For soon it is gone and we fly away.

      2 Samuel 19:34-35 But Barzillai said to the king, “How long have I yet to live, that I should go up with the king to Jerusalem? “I am now eighty years old Can I distinguish between good and bad? Or can your servant taste what I eat or what I drink? Or can I hear anymore the voice of singing men and women? Why then should your servant be an added burden to my lord the king?

      Genesis 6:3 Then the LORD said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; nevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.

      Job 14:5 Since his days are determined, The number of his months is with You; And his limits You have set so that he cannot pass.

      Psalm 91:16 With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.

  4. Mattew 13;22; The seed falling among the thorns , refers to some-one who hears the Word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfullness of wealth, choke the Word, make it un-fruitfull.

  5. @ Mist,

    Suppose you are right and that the families are so corrupt they want to sue your “Man of gods” for profit. Taking this sad tragedy to gamble and make money for their 2 years and 6 years old children, or 65 years old widow that have been left with no breadwinners… For those that lost limb and are unable to take care of themselves. These families are so corrupt that they “want money” from your “Man of god”. This you say of the families… We get your point.

    And what is your take on the behaviour of your “man of gods” who apparently represents “Jesus” in the sense that it is through the “Spirit of Jesus”, the Holy Spirit that he acts. We observe of this “Jesus” that people come to him in this circumstance and he is just happy to hand out gifts to them and send them back as they came with just the gifts that include the ANN7 type documentaries or the flying plane CDs… Can you also say something about this Jesus’ behaviour as a party to the corrupt families that only wants money from him???

    I seem to have red that tjbw condemn ANN7 documentary for being one sided and not giving a chance to the other voice…

    Can you, Mist, say something about the “Man of God” in this interaction with the bereaved families? I would guess what he does is what Jesus himself would have done since it is the “Spirit of Jesus” working in him, right?

    What is your appreciation of this Jesus behaviour?

  6. @All against The True Man of God Prophet Tbjoshua

    Demons manifest in SCOAN that Prophet Tbjoshua is Light and they are darkness those against the Man of God are agents of darkness.

    Eternal fire awaits you and your foolish father. You are just as foolish as your father who even knows that he can not win the battle.



    • @ Francis – so here we go again in the usual disguise, with the very predicable tbj-adoring, worship, drivel. I hear he’s still in Mexico, getting facial surgery to change his appearance. What do you make of that? Silly me, I thought he would just hire a costume for Halloween, lol.

      • @ Jeagerin,

        If he gets a facial surgery, it’s likely they will put a wireless speaker radio device close to his ear so they can whisper all the secrets of others through a microphone they first figured out as Peter Popoff did in the eighties.

        “In May 1986, James Randi presented one of Jason’s videos on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. Popoff initially denied Randi’s accusations and accused NBC of “…[hiring] an actress to impersonate Mrs. Popoff on a doctored videotape”. Eventually Popoff admitted the existence of the radio device, but claimed that Elizabeth only “occasionally” gave him “the name of a person who needs special prayers”. He added that “almost everybody” knew about the wireless communication system.”

      • @Jesse – Thank you, I didn’t even know about Popoff. This is so true to form with these deceivers. They should be in Nollywood!

    • @ Francis,

      “You are just as foolish as your father who even knows that he can not win the battle.”

      My father was a very good man and tried his best in all he could do for his children and the family as a whole, including countless others. Only had little education but was faithful to his wife for over 56 years a champion until he died.

      So I have no clue which father you are talking about. If you refer to Satan, I can tell you the following, I doubt you could even accept what I write here but alas. If there was a way to destroy or finish off Satan, I, yes me, will be the one that will stand in front to do that and let me at it even all alone if that was possible. So all said and done let’s agree that I or anyone here then beside yourself is not deceived as you are with your idol worship of your liar and deceiver TB Joshua who has proven to be very unreliable of what he was saying all over the years in what he tried to brainwash us with. The actions of him have spoken louder than words of the last year developments. He used countless people to protect his choices he did, because I am of opinion that he never had a mandate from God to allow to built that Hostel. If I would have been his close confidant and his closest friend, I would be very disappointed in the road he has chosen to walk upon of how he resolved all this. More even that he claimed and his followers he is a prophet and hears from God, but never heard anything about him allowing to build illegally and without building permit. It is long time that he faces the reality of what it is and come out and confess and go away forever. Not reliable at all. Something that you greatly admire in him and his followers.

    • @ Kegyelem – that’s all you can say. Shame man, if you want anybody to take you seriously, you will have to come up with more than just that.
