This follows the announcement by the charismatic prophet that he had found a cure for HIV/Aids and cancer, which he told his congregants in Waterfalls at the church’s fifth anniversary on Sunday. The Prophet highlighted that the controversial herb, named Aguma, would go on sale this coming Saturday.
The prophet said that together with a group of Indian researchers they had discovered a herb, Aguma, which they claim can treat HIV and cancer, two of the biggest killer conditions in recent times.
Magaya’s claim has gotten him much criticism and put him on the spotlight from government and association of doctors. The Zimbabwe Association of Doctors for Human Rights (ZADHR) has ordered the prophet to retract his claims or he faces legal action against his claims.The association noted that Magaya’s actions were in violation of the Medicines and Allied Substances Act (Section 15:03) and demanded that he makes a public withdrawal of the claim.
“While we have no dispute with innovation and discovery of drugs, we argue that due process of proving clinical efficacy and safety prior to any advertisement and distribution is of paramount importance. As ZADHR, we give you notice to take remedial action within seven calendar days of this notice by withdrawing all products that purport, claim or infer that they cure HIV and Aids from the market forthwith, and making a public statement that withdraws your initial claim to have found a cure for HIV,”
Government has rubbished Magaya’s claims and said that the prophet risked being arrested if he goes ahead to sell the herb, it also said that scientific evidence had to be given to prove his claims and that he has to follow procedures before blowing the trumpet and claiming to be the best HIV/AIDS herbalist in town.
Magaya claimed to have discovered the plant two years ago but had waited “because I wanted it to be chemically proven, scientifically proven”.
“God has given me a revelation, we tested it and it’s perfect. God showed me a certain tree and certain people. We have found the cure for HIV and Aids,” Magaya announced during the service.
The controversial prophet said he was prepared for the Ministry of Health in Zimbabwe to scientifically test his HIV cure stating that the cure was developed from a herb called the Aguma mixed with different herbs from Mozambique. He also said that the Aguma plant was only found in Zimbabwe and is not recorded in any botanical books.
