The Founder of The Synagogue Church of All Nations, Pastor T.B. Joshua, broke down in tears during his church service on Sunday, whilst a song he composed calling for African unity was being rendered.
This comes in the wake of the recent eruption of xenophobic violence in South Africa, which dominated the news all over Africa throughout last week.
Unconventionally, Joshua did not preach any sermon during the service but rather joined the worship team as they led the congregation in a stirring rendition of a song the cleric composed, titled: “Africa Unite.”
The lyrics stressed that no African country is self-sufficient and calls for an end to the violence and lawlessness witnessed in South Africa.
According to Joshua: “We need each other; we need one another to grow. Africa unite. Dear Africans, we should not let other fellow Africans feel unwelcome to our countries.”
Joshua’s tearful appearance during the song shocked his followers as the cleric is usually not known for outward display of emotion.
