BBC: Zimbabwe 'prophet' also developed lipstick for blood pressure (2)

1 November, 2018

Dear Colleagues,

I am not surprised at all at the so called Men and Women of God, Prophets and what note. This is a perenial problem in sub-Saharan Africa and it seems to be getting worse.

What beats me though, is that we have regulatory authories who turn a blind eye to all these.

Can we rope them in and have their medicines subjected to rational clinical tests. Now I know several people will claim SPIRITUAL MATTERS can not be tested.

Sad and a shame
