Yesterday members of the Zimbabwe Republic Police accompanied by the dreaded Central Intelligence agents raided Magaya's Offices in search of his HIV and Cancer cure.

Controversial preacher Walter Magaya on Thursday retracted his claim that he had found a cure for HIV as he agreed to bankroll clinical trials of a herb he claims can remove all traces of the virus within 14 days.

"Just before the search, accused persons destroyed some of the exhibits by flushing the Aguma in the office toilets and burning the containers which were however recovered half-burnt".

Government on Monday, however, dismissed the claims saying prophet Magaya had not yet submitted Aguma for review and assessment as a herbal supplement and people should not buy medicines from unapproved and unlicensed persons. His next court date is 26 November.

He said health experts have said there is no cure yet. The court heard that the preacher had made further claims on the website of his Indian partners, Aretha Medical - where it was recorded that the two parties were together the manufacturers of Aguma.

"I spoke before I looked into authorities regulations".

They said that drivers tend to speed down that stretch of road, going much faster than the limit, which is 35MPH. With grief can come pain and anger for what has happened. "No one should take matters into their own hands".

Also, Zimbabwe's Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Deputy Minister, Monica Mutsvangwa said Government was concerned with these claims as there were processes and procedures in Zimbabwe that medicines go through before they are recognised as effective and safe for use by patients.

"... 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 can confirm that Magaya is assisting police with investigations in connection with enquiries the ZRP is now conducting", he said.

WHO's representative in the country, Dr Alex Gasaira, explicitly stated that "there is no cure for HIV infection".

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. Over one million people were living with HIV in the same year.
