South Africans and fans of gospel music have flooded EFF leader Julius Malema's timeline with well wishes for sick musician and pastor Neyi Zimu.
The messages came after Malema told his Twitter followers that the pastor was fighting for his life in Johannesburg's Baragwanath Hospital.
Malema said he was satisfied with the progress the musician was making, but urged South Africans to pray for him and his family.
This morning we paid Pastor Neyi Zimu a visit at Baragwanath Hospital and we are impressed with the progress our brother and gospel veteran musician is making. My fellow countrymen and women let's pray for him and his family during these difficult times. #PrayForNeyiZimu pic.twitter.com/RhCK5qe6oz

On Tuesday, gospel singer Dr Tumi informed his fans and followers of the star's sickness and asked for prayers.
Evening family. Let’s please keep Pastor Neyi Zimu in our prayers. If you can spare a moment and let’s put his well being before the throne. We trust God for full recovery in Jesus name. The devil is a liar.
