University proves a traditional medicine has no value for Aids sufferers

The University of KwaZulu-Natal has announced that research done on a traditional medicine claimed to be an Aids treatment has shown that it does not have any benefit for patients. According to media reports, Zeblon Gwala, the manufacturer of the medicine Ubhejane and Herbert Vilakazi, an advisor to Sbu Ndebele, the KwaZulu-Natal premier, have quoted research from UKZN to support claims that the product can cure Aids. Ubhejane is apparently a mixture of 89 herbs said to have a potent activity against opportunistic infections associated with HIV/Aids. The university says these claims are unfounded. A month's supply of the product is said to cost 342-rand.
