I can confirm police this evening raided Prophet Walter Magaya offices to recover samples of his Aguma medicine which he claims cures HIV.

The State alleges that just before the search, Magaya allegedly destroyed some of the exhibits by flushing them down his office toilets and burning some of the containers which were, however, recovered half burnt.

The Zimbabwe Association of Doctors for Human Rights (ZADHR) yesterday threatened to slap the PHD founder with a lawsuit within seven days because his HIV/Aids treatment claim is risky and leaves patients prone to infection.

He was expected back in court on November 29.

Magaya on Thursday held a joint press conference with the Ministry of Health and Child Care focusing on his Aids cure claim.

Aretha Medical, the company behind the production, marketing and sale of Aguma, was also not authorised to carry out any clinical tests on human beings to prove that Aguma can cure HIV.

Wayne Rooney set for England farewell match
Unfortunately, the fairytale ended this week as Rooney missed a penalty in a 3-2 penalty shootout defeat to the Columbus Crew. The 33-year-old, who now plays for MLS side DC United , has not played for England in nearly two years.

This comes after the popular preacher told multitudes at his Waterfalls church on Sunday that he had found a cure for HIV/Aids and cancer but said patients will not be required to stop taking their anti-retroviral drugs.

"I carry an apology to them and the public". His sensational claims triggered a fierce backlash from both authorities and medical experts, who robustly pooh-poohed them - saying this had the potential to destabilise the government's fight against HIV/Aids.

Magaya appeared briefly before the Harare magistrates court before he was released on $300 bail, the report said. He added that the government was set to announce the first public results on Aguma after 14 days, saying further that the herbs had undergone the appropriate registration as a supplement in Zimbabwe and that he had also approached the World Health Organisation.

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 ministry strongly urges all clients on treatment for HIV and Aids to continue on their prescribed medication".
