Prophet Magaya of the Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries said last weekend that a herb known as "aguma" had the potency to render the HIV virus impotent.
"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".
He was granted $300 bail and remanded to November 29.
UNDER-FIRE preacher Walter Magaya has issued an apology for "rushed" claims he had discovered a cure for HIV/Aids, telling a joint media briefing with the Health Ministry Thursday that he made the announcement out of "excitement".
Verifications were made with the Medicines Control Authority of Zimbabwe on their records and it was established that Aguma was not a registered medicine in Zimbabwe. The State also alleges that neither Magaya nor Aretha Medical are authorised by the Health Professions Authority to carry out clinical tests on any human being, to prove that Aguma can cure HIV/Aids and cancer.
Eight children injured as inflatable slide collapses
Surrey police declared a major incident at the Woking Park fireworks display after the incident, which happened at about 7.30pm. Some people who attended the event said they thought not enough was done to make sure that the children on the slide were safe.
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.
"We write to seek an urgent retraction of your claim to cure HIV and Aids".
On October 31, police obtained a warrant of search and seizure at the Harare Magistrates' Court and raided Magaya's church premises and allegedly recovered unregistered prescription preparatory medicines, drug manufacturing, packaging machines and drug manufacturing raw materials and 20 bags containing empty capsules, plastic containers and plastic container lids. "I carry a very important apology to the ministry, to the public at large and all organisations". Having carried the research outside the country (in India), I went on to announce the results unprocedurally. I apologize once again.
World Health Organization representative in the country, Dr Alex Gasaira, explicity said "there is no cure for HIV infection".
The stance of the government was reiterated by the World Health Organisation. Over one million people were living with HIV in the same year.
