The raid came after the government and health practitioners strongly condemned the public declaration by the self-styled Prophet that he has found a cure to the two of the world's most incurable diseases.
"I can confirm police this evening raided Prophet Walter Magaya offices to recover samples of his Aguma medicine, which he claims cures HIV. It's unfortunate that Magaya did not have all regulations in place", Moyo said.
Speaking at the same occasion, Dr Obadiah Moyo applauded Prophet Magaya's decision to retract his claims.More news: Who Florentino Perez's top target to manage Real Madrid is!

Meanwhile, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has dismissed Magaya's claim arguing that there is no known cure for HIV infection. The claims set off a wave of criticism as health professionals and rights groups said his revelations had the potential of destabilising the anti-retroviral treatment (ART) programme, which now has millions of patients on treatment.
