Controversial Zimbabwean "prophet" Walter Magaya has retracted his claim that he found a cure for HIV.

As Briefly.co.za reported, Magaya claimed recently that God had revealed to him the cure, which he named "Aguma."

However, local health authorities and world bodies, including the World Health Organisation, dismissed his claim.

According to EWN, Zimbabwe's Minister of Health Obadiah Moyo said:

Magaya rushed without realising the impact of his message and his popularity and disregarded the facts in the regulation of medicines in the country.

At a press conference yesterday, Magaya apologised for his "premature" announcement and pledged to submit his "cure" to clinical trials.

The leader of the Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries said:

Having carried the research from outside the country, I went on to announce the results unprocedurally. I apologise once again. Together we are going to work towards running intensive clinical trials for Aguma.

Moyo urged HIV patients in Zimbabwe to continue taking their ARV medication because Magaya's "cure" is untested.
