I Can Cure People of HIV, Claims Gambian President

Gambian President Yahya Jammeh has again stirred controversy for claiming that he has a “natural cure” for HIV and that he has now successfully treated over 68 patients.

Reports Reuters:

“Who am I to expect that everybody would praise me,” Jammeh said in a state television broadcast on Sunday evening, announcing that 68 patients had been cured and discharged from a treatment centre.

“Just as the Prophet Mohammed prevailed and established Islam (…)I also prevailed to cure HIV/AIDS to the point that 68 are being discharged today,” he said.

Jammeh went on to say that he has “cured” a seventh batch of patients using his so-called herbal remedy. Even more worryingly, Jammeh reportedly said during the Sunday broadcast that he now wants to offer his “natural medicine,” the nature of which has not been disclosed, in all the country’s hospitals.

The exact ingredients of the medicine is shrouded in mystery but it is described by CNN in a 2007 article as “a murky brown concoction of seven herbs and spices” that was “served out of a bottle that once contained pancake syrup.”

Pink News reports that, shortly after announcing the supposed treatment a few years ago, “Gambians lined up to be ‘cured’ by Jammeh, who treated patients by rubbing a mysterious herbal paste into their ribcages and then instructing them to swallow a bitter yellow drink, followed by two bananas.”

Jammeh, who has no formal medical training whatsoever, bills the concoction as a complement to Western medicine, but organizations like the World Health Organization and the United Nations have aired their concerns that Jammeh is endangering patients with unfounded claims about a HIV cure that simply does not exist, and that, even more worryingly, there is nothing “complimentary” about the medicine when it requires that patients cease antiretroviral therapy.

What’s more, it appears those who have tried to challenge Jammeh’s “cure” have been silenced.

Again, from the 2007 CNN article:

One critic was Fadzai Gwaradzimba, the U.N. envoy to Gambia. She was abruptly kicked out of the country after saying on February 9 that patients should continue their normal treatment and that Jammeh’s concoction be “assessed by an international team of experts.”

“The U.N. system encourages all patients currently receiving anti-retroviral treatment to continue to comply with their recommended treatment regimens while the efficacy of the new treatment is being assessed,” she said. (Read full statement)

The U.N. Development Program stands by the envoy’s remarks. The World Health Organization has also been critical of Jammeh’s treatment.

Accusations of human rights abuses have dogged Jammeh since he came to power following a military coup in 1994. He once called for the beheading of gay people, a call he would later retract, and has been heavily criticized for his use of firing squads to execute death-row inmates.

There currently exists no known prescription cure for HIV/AIDS, and while one man has effectively been cured following a bone marrow transplant, research is ongoing as to the exact reasons why his HIV symptoms were eradicated and how to make the results reproducible for other HIV/AIDS patients.

Natural herbs have cured so many illness that drugs and injection cant cure. I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. i read people's testimonies online on how they were cured of herpes, hiv, diabetics etc by Dr. Ogba Kosu herbal medicine, so i decided to contact the doctor because i know nature has the power to heal anything.

I was haven herpes 2 spreading all over my body even on my private part two. I have had them for about 2 and a bit years. I am so scared what my mates are going to says if there should fined out i have herpes on my private part and due to the virus my girlfriend broke up with me. I have been to the Doctors 9 times to get it treated. They all come back. I have been using Tee Tree Oil and Wartner (You freeze them at home) and they seem to be keeping the smaller herpes small but they can't seem to treat the larger ones. They don't get any bigger, but then they can't shrink as much. They get smaller a little part at a time. At least they are getting smaller! As soon as I see a new herpes appearing, then I treat it. At the moment I have been using Tee Tree twice a week and then using Wartner every 2 weeks. I was wondering if there was any other information about how to get rid of it. I am only a teenager and I hate it most when it get pi-chins me to scratch it, it get sweets when scratching it most times! I want to get rid of it so bad! DR.ODUDU website has been a huge help and has helped me realize a lot more about me and my family of genital herpes! so that was when i switch for natural remedy to see if there could be any help by herbal remedy, i search and i saw a great posts by Sarah devise adebayo ehijactor and shanttel Merritt on about the great herbal doctor that get them rid of there disease infection. and this great herbal doctor was called DR.ODUDU so that was wh
