Retired Tanzanian clergyman Ambilikile Mwasapile, who was popularly known as Babu Wa Loliondo, is dead.
The self-proclaimed ‘miracle healer’, who was 86, died this afternoon, 30th July, while being taken to hospital.
He was pronounced dead at Dogodigo Health Centre in Arusha.
A family member, Eric Nabolo, said the retired church minister has been feeling unwell for the last two weeks.
In 2010, he grabbed the world’s attention after claiming that he had found the medication for all chronic diseases, including HIV/Aids.
He alleged then that God instructed him on how to make a herbal concoction that could cure all ailments.
Hundreds of thousands of people from all corners of the world trooped to his home in a remote village in northern Tanzania to receive the single-cup dose. Some were seen arriving at his remote rural home using chartered helicopters.
However, Babu came under sharp criticism after some of the people who took the concoction died while others became more critically ill.
