Magaya’s company, Aretha medicals, is facing three charges which include:

1. Manufacturing without a license
2. Operating a lab without a license
3. Yet to find out

He is being represented by Everson Chatambudza.

This comes a few hours after Magaya appeared in a joint press conference with the Health minister Dr Obadiah Moyo, on Thursday, where he apologised for :jumping the gun” and announced that he has found the drugs to cure HIV.

Magaya has since been granted $300 bail, to surrender title deeds to his Waterfalls property among other conditions. He will be back in court November 26.
