WHO Replies Zimbabwean Preacher Who Claimed To Have Cure For HIV

WHO counters Zimbabwean preacher’s HIV cure claim

The raid comes a few days after the preacher told multitudes of followers at his church on Sunday that he had found a cure for HIV/AIDS and cancer.

Prophet Healing and Deliverance Leader Walter Magaya has apologised to the Ministry of Health and Child Care for by passing procedure in announcing his cure for cancer and HIV through the Aguma herb.

Besides stirring anger among Western medical experts who said Magaya was giving false hope to the sick, the Health ministry pointedly pooh-poohed his claims and any suggestions that he had the support of the government or might have got approval for his organic medicine.

A court has heard of a desperate scramble to destroy evidence before police swooped on Walter Magaya's office in Harare to seize unlicenced medicines he meant to sell as an HIV cure.

"Relevant authorities are urgently looking into the claims".

On October 31, police obtained a warrant of search and seizure at the Harare Magistrates' Court and raided Magaya's church premises and allegedly recovered unregistered prescription preparatory medicines, drug manufacturing, packaging machines and drug manufacturing raw materials and 20 bags containing empty capsules, plastic containers and plastic container lids.

"I carry an apology to them and the public". Having carried the research outside the country (in India), I went on to announce the results unprocedurally.

"I can confirm that Magaya is assisting police with investigations in connection with enquiries the ZRP is now conducting", he said.

As of the end of 2017, 87 per cent of Zimbabweans living with HIV were aware of their status, and 74 per cent of them were receiving treatment, UNAIDS report stated.

The stance of the government was reiterated by the World Health Organisation. The claims set off a wave of criticism as health professionals and rights groups said his revelations had the potential of destabilising the anti-retroviral treatment (ART) programme, which now has millions of patients on treatment.

However, while speaking on the matter, Dr Alex Gasaira, WHO's representative in the country, explicitly stated that "there is no cure for HIV infection". Zimbabwe has an HIV prevalence rate of 13,7 percent according to 2016 national estimates.
