It was also established that neither accused (2) nor Aretha Medical company were authorised by Health Professions Authority to carry out Clinical tests on any human being to prove that Aguma can cure the aforementioned diseases thereby committing an offence.

Police raided Magaya's Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries property on Edinburg Road in Marlbrough suburb and found drug-making machines, packaging machines and what police listed as "prescription preparatory medicines".

Speaking at the same occasion, Health and Child Care Minister Dr Obadiah Moyo applauded Prophet Magaya's decision to retract his claims.

Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries (P.H.D) is a Christian religious organisation founded in 2010 and led by Walter Magaya who is a self-proclaimed prophet. I carry an apology to them and the public.


". After discovering what I discovered which was tested in India, holding a report which I overwhelmingly went on and announced what I was carrying in my hands without taking note of the authorities of Zimbabwe". I apologize once again.

"I took heed of what government and relevant boards have asked me to do to retract my earlier claim, which I am now doing", he said.

"According to what the Ministry has assured us, we are going to run very intense trials until they have come up with a position on the plant", said Prophet Magaya.

Dr Moyo said Prophet Magaya made his claims without realising the impact of it considering his huge following. "I want to reiterate that please carry on with your medicines, Magaya's medicine has not yet been approved. This is done prior to registration and the results are submitted to the medicines regulator as evidence of the effectiveness of a medicine", said Minister Mutsvangwa. "Zimbabwe appreciate new discoveries but we want them to go through scientifically proven processes and these processes are what we are following now". "And now following the regulations, he is now back in the fold. We have been using herbal concoctions from other countries".
