It is surprising that an esteemed paper like Zimbabwe Daily could publish such untruths about T.B.Joshua. The best and proper way of conducting investigations is to contact T.B Joshua himself to confirm or deny the allegations before publishing the article. It behooves you to also do a proper check on the individuals who have made the allegations and why they made them. Were they aggrieved persons? Why did they leave the ministry and what were their motives?
I realised that most of your research was from the internet/ secondary sources and that is bad enough for a professional journalist of your standing. Granted that most of your writing was from the internet, you also took a chunk of your writing from attacks on the prophet by so called questionable pastors like Chris Okotie. It is clear that your main purpose is to discredit T.B. Joshua and his ministry.
I don’t know how patriotic you are and I wouldn’t be surprised if one day you turn your pen against Mugabe without cross checking facts with him. Don’t be surprised, that is how it starts and before you realize it has become a social canker.
Peter kayode was the head of the Ghana branch of Synagogue until he was relieved from his post. Being aggrieved, he threw caution to the wind by making all sorts of allegations without evidence just to discredit the man of God. His successor Agomoh also followed the steps of kayode with his nefarious acts only to be booted from the Ghana branch. They all had one thing in common, they pounced on unsuspecting and gullible members of the congregation either sleeping with them or soliciting large amounts of monies from them. If they resigned on their own accord then that should be another thing, but in this case they were pushed out because they were not bearing good fruit.
And for a balance article you should have fallen back on your main source which was the internet and taken T.B Joshua’s responses to these allegations which could also be found on the internet. That would have shown your maturity as an open minded journalist but you failed the test. To say you are a bigot is understatement. I rest my case.
