Crowds Come Over Roads and by Helicopters for Tanzanian's Cure-All Potion By JEFFREY GETTLEMAN Published: March 28, 2011 - He's a sensation in two countries. He's snarled traffic for miles. He's so popular that people have literally died waiting in line to see him. Ambilikile Mwasapile, a 76-year-old retired pastor in rural Tanzania, has been offering a herbal concoction that he bills as a miracle potion that can cure just about any illness. In the past few weeks, tens of thousands of sick people have scrambled for a sip of his homebrewed drink. Some, apparently, have even flown in by helicopter. On Monday, Tanzanian officials said that several dozen elderly and sick people had recently paid the price for joining the throngs. "They died from the long queues," said Isidore Shirima, a local official in Arusha, a town popular with tourists about six hours' drive from the pastor's village. "We're not going to stop this, but we want to organize it better."
