The ruling National Resistance Movement -NRM party supporters accompanied by their colleagues from the opposition parties have joined the call to support the certification of David Ssenfuka, the proprietor of a herbal remedy that is said to cure cancer and diabetes.
In January this year, a number of big shots including a retired Chief Justice and a former Member of Parliament spoke out on their close brushes with death and how a herbal remedy by Ssenfuka, the director of Leonia -NNN-Medical Research and Diagnostic Center Limited cured them.
Addressing a joint press conference in Kampala today led by the former Nakawa Division Lord Councilor Bruhan Byaruhanga, the NRM supporters say that their plea is to see President Museveni expeditiously support the accreditation of Ssenfuka’s herbal remedy for all Ugandans to access.
Byaruhanga however calls upon all Ugandans especially conventional science practitioners to support innovators in traditional medicine to uplift their discoveries for the common good.
In February this year, Ssenfuka suspended offering relieving treatment to new patients as a result of increased attacks on his innovations amidst a green light that had been given to him by the Ministry of Science and Technology to carry out clinical trials for Hus herbal remedy after it passed tests on product safety.
