Families told the newspaper they had been presented with gifts on behalf of Joshua.

“They met with my family at home, offering condolences, and gave them R5000. I told them: ‘Whatever you are offering, it can never compare with the life of my sister’,” said Thanduxolo Doro, who lost his sister Vathiswa Madikiza in the Lagos tragedy.

The guesthouse of the Synagogue Church of All Nations collapsed on September 12, claiming the lives of 116 people, 84 of them South Africans.

Kirsten Nematandani, a former president of the SA Football Association and a “fellow” of Joshua’s church said several teams had visited each affected family.

“In fact this is the second round of visits …We are assisting the families with whatever they need, school fees, rent, groceries and toiletries,” he said.

“The families are so grateful for the help …we take the message from the man of God that they must pray with him for the loss of their loved ones. We give them the anointed water to strengthen them.”

Nematandani said the church would continue to support the families.
