A post on his Facebook page, which has more than five million followers, said: “God has taken His servant”.
He was said to have died on Saturday shortly after conducting a live broadcast, but the cause of his death has not been made public.
Tens of thousands would attend his services, with top politicians from across Africa among his followers.

There was no sign of him been sick, he just left unaware. There was a video he made few days talking and planning of how his next birthday which is in about 6 days .
