Police are holding a man who was arrested over allegations of impersonation and claiming that he can cure HIV/Aids and Hepatitis B.
Emmanuel Ndali was tracked and arrested by Health Monitoring Unit personnel after he had placed posters on electricity poles along Gayaza Road, at Kubiri along Bwaise road and at Makerere University. The posters state that he cures the deadly virus in 15 days and Hepatitis B in 30 days.
“The team successfully tracked him and recovered the said liquid herb in jerrycans together with other sacks of herbs that he allegedly uses to cure the said diseases. We later got to learn that he did not have any background in medicine or pharmacy,” said Mr Emmanuel Ainebyoona, the ministry of health senior public relations officer.
