BY FELISTER PETER- The Guardian 29th October 2011 Pastor Ambilikile Mwasapila alias `Babu` Tanzania Food and Drug Authority (TFDA) yesterday came under pressure from MPs to stop retired pastor Ambilikile Mwasapila alias ‘Babu' from dispensing his ‘miracle cure', claiming it had contributed to a number of deaths. The MPs, members of Parliamentary Committee on Social Services were speaking in Dar es Salaam during the tour of TFDA offices. They said that since the retired pastor started offering his miracle healing most of the patients had shifted from proper medical treatments, one of the factors behind a number of deaths. Special Seats MP Zarina Madabida (CCM) said the diseases that pastor Mwasapila claims to treat such as diabetes and HIV/Aids are serious, but people trusted him and stopped taking medical treatments. "This man is now famous worldwide due to his medicines and the kind of diseases he claims to be curing…. I would advise you to halt his services", she said. Nionavyo mimi huyu mzee wasingemzuia, kwani kuna wengi wanaoamini tiba yake hadi leo na kuna waliopona wengi tu. Kama wanafkiria kumfungia babu Mwaisapile, wafkirie pia kufungia waganga wote wa tiba mbadala/wakienyeji/wa jadi maana nadhani athari zao ni kubwa zaidi hata ya za Babu ila tu hazijawa quantified/hazijafanyiwa tathmin. Zaidi ya hayo, ungefanyika utafiti kabla ya kufanya hivyo maana hadi sasa kwa kweli ni hearsay tu, na kama yatafanyika maamuzi hayo bila kufanyika uchunguzi wa kina, kwa kweli itakuwa ni chuki tu na babu.
