The inventor of the Sondashi Formula 2 000, LUDWIG SONDASHI, says his remedy should be taken for clinical trials because initial tests have proved that it can cure HIV and AIDS.
Dr. SONDASHI has told the parliamentary committee on Health, Community Development and Social Services that his medicine which has been found to kill HIV in the laboratory has so far allegedly cured about 4 hundred people that had contracted HIV.
He says at the moment he feels frustrated that his herb has not been taken up for further clinical trials.
Dr. SONDASHI explained to the committee chaired by Senanga Member of Parliament LIKANDA MUFALALI that attempts to have active ingredients extracted from his herb by a laboratory with the capacity to do so have proven difficult.
He told the parliamentary committee to help him in his quest to have government buy into the herb and conduct further trials.
And Mr. MUFALALI said he will take up the issues raised by Dr. SONDASHI in the final report to the Speaker of the National Assembly.
But Health Minister JOSEPH KASONDE says government is exploring possibilities of making capsules from the sondashi formula before the clinical trials start.
Dr KASONDE says government is in the process of buying machines to make capsules not just for the sondashi formula but other drugs as well.
He has however said that the delay in procuring the machine presents an opportunity to look elsewhere with regard to making capsules for the Sondashi formula.
Dr KASONDE says government is committed to ensuring that clinical trials are conducted on the sondashi formula 2000.
Dr Ludwig Sondashi, is the inventor of the Sondashi Formula 2000 HIV herbal remedy which he claims has cured over 400 people suffering from HIV after taking his medicine.
