I think if this were true then Africa would not be facing the AIDS crisis it currently is.

A claim by Gambian President Yahya Jammeh that he can cure Aids in three days has been lambasted by a leading South African HIV/Aids specialist.

President Jammeh, who says he can also cure asthma, made his announcement to a gathering of foreign diplomats last month.

“I can treat asthma and HIV/Aids… Within three days the person should be tested again and I can tell you that he/she will be negative,” he said in a statement.

“I am not a witch doctor and in fact you cannot have a witch doctor. You are either a witch or a doctor.”

Gambian Health Minister Tamsir Mbow says the herbal medicines are taken orally and applied to the body.
