    At least 78 per cent of people who have drunk a herbal concoction from former pastor Ambilikile Mwasapile claim they have been cured of diseases they were suffering from, a Synovate Tanzania report shows.

    The report, which was issued in Dar es Salaam yesterday by the company’s managing director Aggrey Oriwo, says only 7 per cent of the patients said they were not cured.

    It says 83 per cent of Tanzanians disagree with a statement that it was easy to access the ex-pastor, while 17 per cent of the respondents agree that it was easy to access him.

    However, the report shows 60 per cent of the respondents took the herbal medicine from the retired pastor. Other two herbalists who have claimed their concoctions can cure diseases too are Mbeya resident Dogo Jafferi and Tabora resident Margaret, alias Bibi wa Tabora.

    On whether the ex-pastor’s concoction cures diseases or not, 59 per cent of the responds believe it does.

    The diseases that people mainly seek treatment for from the ex-pastor are diabetes (24 per cent), high/low blood pressure (22 per cent), HIV/Aids (13 per cent) and cancer (12 per cent).

    The report also shows that 21 per cent of Tanzanians would visit a herbalist when they feel sick but an overwhelming 75 per cent of the population will not when they are sick.

    It indicates that the majority of Tanzanians recognise and accept herbalists as opposed to witchdoctors. This means that a herbalist and witchdoctor are viewed as two different people and have different roles to play in society.

    The people also seem to agree that the government should regulate the work of herbalists.

    Meanwhile, 85 per cent of Tanzanians think that herbalists should be regulated, while 12 per cent think the government shouldn’t regulate them.

    In June, this year, the government was alerted that Kenyan marketers had taken advantage of famed ex-pastor Masapile and the influx of multitudes of people to Samunge village in Loliondo district, Arusha region, to advertise and market their own country.

    Contributing to the Prime Minister’s office budget debate, Ngorongoro MP Kaika Saning’o Telele (CCM) said the responsible ministry should come up with a strong statement against the Kenyan marketers and restrict them from promoting the traditional cure abroad as coming from Kenya.

    Kenyans were reportedly running adverts everywhere that Samunge village could be easily be reached from Kenya, he said, adding that while the distance from the Kenya-Tanzania border to Samunge village was about 300 kilometres.

    Last month, ex-pastor Masapila said he could also help barren women to conceive.
