We have a current president who once said taking a shower after unprotected sex will lower the risk of HIV transmission and we have a former president who once denied that HIV causes AIDS. No surprise then that a Durban priest with thousands of followers is selling holy water for at least R10 a bottle claiming it cures HIV/Aids.
Bishop Hamilton Nala in Durban says people can be healed of Aids with his holy water. But of course his holy service is not free…his followers have to pay up to R15.
And oh…he asked his followers not to get him into trouble with the law by continuing to take their ARV medication.
The Treatment Action Campaign group is calling bullsh*t and shaking their head at Bishop Nala though and are demanding that his miracle remedy undergo clinical trials.
“But the priest says the tests won’t make a difference to his followers.
“They must say medically there is no cure for Aids. I agree with that, but through prayer and through faith water and any material branded my name, as God said prophetically, I believe in that. People can be healed of Aids,” said Nala.
The TAC has warned that if the so-called holy water fails the clinical trials, it will push for Nala to be arrested.” [eNCA]
