Zimbabwean Prophet Finds ‘Cure’ For HIV And AIDS


The Founder of Prophetic Healing and Deliverance (PHD) Ministries, Prophet Walter Magaya made surprising claims when he announced that he had discovered the cure for HIV. The church is located in Harare capital of Zimbabwe.


The new ‘cure’ is a herb called  AGUMA and it is said to have magical powers. The herb destroy the virus within 14 days of one taking the herb. Prophet Magaya said “As you continue to take the AGUMA, you start to see your CD4 count disappearing until you become HIV negative,” at his church in Harare on Sunday (28 October 2018).


The ‘cure’, was by God’s revelation claims Prophet Magaya “God has given me a revelation, we tested it (the cure) and it’s perfect. God showed me a certain tree, certain people. We have found the cure for HIV and AIDS.”


He said that together with some Indian partners, he has now formed a company called Aretha Medical. It will distribute the drug after it’s been tested by the relevant authorities.


The Harare based Prophet said he is already working with the Zimbabwean government which is taking his ‘cure’ through some laboratory tests to see if his claims were feasible. “With the government of Zimbabwe, they are summoning the local research board, the Minister of Health has already indicated to me that they are bringing people that are HIV positive and start testing them.”


Medicines and Allied Substances Control Act (MASCA) [15:03] and the Medicines and Allied Substances Control Regulations (MASCR) SI 150 of 1991 requires that all medicines be registered. After scientific scrutiny of quality, safety and efficacy data, before they are allowed to be used on the Zimbabwean public and/or animals.


Magaya said he discovered the ‘cure’ some two years ago but used it secretly on HIV positive persons to first prove its effectiveness before he could boldly go public about it. This then points to the claim that the ‘cure’ has already been used on humans.


Prophet Magaya said he was offered $56 million by an American company for him  to point them to the tree. We are the first people to discover this plant, so we have intellectual rights. This plant is not in any botanic records.


The Prophet claims that it (AGUMA) is 100% organic and has no side effects. Prophet  Magaya claims the ‘cure’ is a mixture of a Zimbabwean plant and a Mozambican one and that it’s scientifically proven. He made his intentions of working together with the government to form a board of researchers. Prophet Magaya said that he has his own testimonies but is aware that people may not “listen to a mere prophet.”


He brought some Indians to his church in an attempt to spur confidence. The Indians are said to be working in laboratories and were convinced of the magical ‘cure’s’ power


The announcement was made when the Prophet was addressing a group of local and foreign journalists who were flown from various African countries such as Angola, Botswana, Eswatini, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho and South Africa.

The Zimbabwe Association of Doctors for Human Rights takes great exception to the recent claims by Prophet W Magaya that he has found a cure for HIV and AIDS. ZADHR acknowledges the prophet’s right to freedom of worship and his entitlements to his beliefs. However it is the conviction of ZADHR that any claims to cure HIV must only be made in the presence of irrefutable scientific evidence that is obtained through proper and ethical research methodologies. Such unverified claims have the potential to increase the number of Anti Retroviral Therapy defaulters, increased risky behavior practices and exposure to potentially harmful side effects of the herbs. ZADHR calls upon

1. Prophet Magaya to publicly reverse his claims that he had a cure for HIV and AIDS as there is no empirical research that proves his claims.
2. The Minister of Health Dr Obidiah Moyo to publicly censure Prophet Magaya and also institute an investigation into the safety of the herbs he is claiming to have.
3. The National AIDS Council and all other HIV related civil society groups to warn the public in the potential disastrous effects of these unverified claims.

Provision of accurate health information is a key pillar of the constitutionally enshrined right to health and ZADHR is saddened by this incident.
