Shepherd in charge of Champions Royal Assembly, Bro Joshua Iginla, reportedly caused a stir in Botswana recently when during a crusade he had in the African nation he dashed a destitute woman, Ms. Moleofi Mokane, a newly built two bedroom apartment fully furnished.
We gathered that the philanthropic prophet who was on a three-day apostolic invasion in the country was moved to tears when he heard of the pathetic situation of the woman who lived under the tree alone.
We learnt she was squatting from one place to the other. However, the people she squatted with couldn’t accommodate her anymore, thus, she was forced to sleep under a tree. Her condition was so terrible that her fingers and toes were chopped off and her children also deserted her, only one of her children stays with her. Consequently, Bro. Iginla acquired land and built the new two bedroom apartment that is well equipped with electricity, water, gas cooker and filled cylinder, jacuzzi and water system toilet. The house is located at Mochudi.
Iginla’s gesture, we learnt, caused an uproar in the country. The representatives of his Excellency, the President of Botswana, Lt. General Ian Khama(Rtd), ably represented by the Senior private secretary.., Brig. General George M Tlhalerwa(Rtd), said nobody has ever done such a thing in the nation of Botswana; not even Pastors within the country.
Also at the venue to grace the occasion, were the Chief of Protocol to His Excellency, the President of Botswana, Ms Kgosi Nthinane Tladi and the Nigerian High Commissioner to Botswana Mr Ademola Oladele…the presentation was also covered by the Botswana National Television.
The old woman was overwhelmed as she burst into tears, thanking and praising God.
