Police raid prophet Magaya

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.

The court heard Magaya attempted to destroy some of the exhibits by flashing them in the office toilets and burning the containers which were however covered half burnt.

He was expected back in court on November 29. Verifications had subsequently been sought through the Medicines Control Authority of Zimbabwe, which revealed that Aguma was not a registered medicine or drug in the country.

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.

"We write to seek an urgent retraction of your claim to cure HIV and Aids".

"I carry a very important apology to the ministry, to the public at large and all organisations".

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. "At the same time, I would like to acknowledge the ministry, which has held me like a child and showed me the way", Magaya said during Thursday's press conference.

In a statement, World Health Organization representative to Zimbabwe Alex Gasasira said to date, there is no known and proven cure for HIV infection, but effective treatment exists to manage the infection through antiretroviral therapy and drugs.

The World Health Organisation also reaffirmed that there is "no cure" for HIV, insisting that people living with HIV/AIDS need to continue with anti-retroviral therapy to manage their infections. "Health experts say there is no cure yet", he said.
