Africa offered an herbal 'cure' to the world, and the world said 'no thanks'


Did you know that Tanzania has only had 21 deaths from C19 in their population of 60 million?

Contributing author Tatiana Prophet of Back To Facts ( has provided some of the best research into the Covid 19 scamdemic. In this article, the spotlight is on the easy cures that western officialdom rejected.

John Magufuli, president of Tanzania, who famously tested objects and animals for Covid-19. Of those, a paw-paw fruit, a goat and a quail all tested positive

"If the white man was able to come up with vaccinations, he should have found a vaccination for AIDS by now; he would have found a vaccination of tuberculosis by now; he would have found a vaccination for malaria by now; he would have found a vaccination for cancer by now.

The Health ministry must know that not every vaccination is meaningful to our nation. Tanzanians must be mindful so that we are not used for trials of some doubtful vaccinations which can have serious repercussions on our health."

John Magufuli

And now for the punchline, Madagascar has not left the World Health Organization. That action is reserved for maverick, or impulsive, American Presidents — and the adjective depends on whom you ask.

What is true, however, is that Madagascar's young and colorful president, 46-year-old Andry Rajoelina, announced in April 2020 that his government had come up with a promising treatment for Covid-19, an herbal tonic dubbed "Covid Organics." And the treatment has become quite popular throughout Africa, where Covid cases and deaths are much lower than northern hemispheric, Western nations. One buyer of Covid Organics is Tanzania, where a staunchly independent character also presides — and even stole world headlines last year when he secretly put samples from a fruit and a goat through a Covid test (three items came out positive).

Tanzania has had only 21 deaths during the entire pandemic, out of 60 million people, while Madagascar endured 285 Covid deaths out of a population of 28 million. Those are excellent numbers, but nowhere near the lowest Covid deaths in the continent. Still, it's much better than much of the northern hemisphere, and infinitesimal compared to the 3,684 deaths in Madagascar from malaria — almost 13 times the number of Covid deaths to date.

The treatment's main ingredient is artemisia annua, also known as Sweet Wormwood, originating in China and known there as qinghao. Ironically, artemisia annua was scientifically shown to treat malaria, at one time with the blessing of the WHO, especially in malaria strains that have developed a resistance to chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine. At some point, malaria became resistant to artemisia annua, so WHO scientists developed ACT, or artemisinin-based combination therapies to combat malaria, with great success. (Not to be confused with AZT, the first drug approved for AIDS which was later shown to be highly toxic, albeit effective).

Malaria is no joke in sub-Saharan Africa; every single demographic is at risk, especially young children; and 500,000 people die of the disease worldwide — mostly in Africa. So the WHO's concern in 2020 about the use of artemisia annua causing malaria to become resistant, is valid. Still, ACT is the replacement for artemisia. But most of the headlines don't get into that nuance, instead preferring to smear the plant that has seen so much success against the parasite.

The smear campaign was relentless all throughout 2020.

Two weeks after Rajoelina's announcement (and drinking the product at his press conference), the World Health Organization responded, touting its record of approving traditional remedies and cautioning against using "unproven" traditional medicine to treat Covid-19.

"WHO supports scientifically-proven traditional medicine," May 4, 2020.

And major worldwide media were quick to re-type the WHO's press release.

"Unproven herbal remedy against COVID-19 could fuel drug-resistant malaria, scientists warn," Science magazine, May 6, 2020.

"Madagascar coronavirus herbal mix draws demand from across Africa despite WHO misgivings," Reuters, May 8, 2020.

"Amid WHO warnings and with no proof, some African nations turn to herbal tonic to try to treat Covid-19," CNN, May 15, 2020.

By August 2020, Madagascar had a "surge" in cases and deaths, if you call going from zero deaths to a couple hundred a "surge." Compare those deaths to malaria in that country, and you get the idea.

"Madagascar president's herbal tonic fails to halt Covid-19 spike," BBC, August 13.

Finally, by December, an article lumped many "fraudulent" cures together, including this one and a fake HIV cure alleged to have been created in Gambia.

"As treatments for COVID-19 are sought, there also needs to be a stronger stance against promoting unproven medicines," African Arguments, December 2020. We should note that this same article accused President Rajoelina of "sidelining his health experts." Sound familiar? The president is definitely a colorful personality. He used to be a national DJ, holding large-scale events that were wildly successful in the 1990s. At age 31, he became mayor of the capital city, Antananarivo. In 2009, he came to power in a military coup, and served as president until 2014. By 2018, he ran for president again, this time winning the election for his current term.

This is an interview with Rajoelina by France 24 from May 2020 and it's very informative.

To recap our fact check: There are two claims. 1) Madagascar has allegedly left the WHO; and 2) The WHO allegedly offered Madagascar's President Rajoelina $20 million to put a toxin in the nation's herbal treatment (which he has exported to other nations in Africa).

We have verified that the nation did not leave the WHO; but as for the other, that's unprovable. Still, the global media widely panned this treatment, which is odd since it originally cured the prevalent-Africa-wide parasite malaria; and the malaria parasite feeds off hemoglobin, and hemoglobin is what Covid-19 attacks. Yet every article is skeptical and always says "no results yet." Well if a pandemic can't speed clinical trials up to at least an average level, or a pandemic can't move us to try natural cures when the alternative is death, what does that say about our efficiency as a society?

Hemoglobin, transporter of oxygen to the body, is the link between malaria and Covid-19. We have never seen this information anywhere else except our original source, which was a doctor on a web site dedicated to treating Hemophilia-B. Both hydroxychloroquine and artemisia are used to treat malaria.

Tanzanian President John Magufuli was elected in 2015. He was praised for fighting outside influence, corruption and foreign influence, and even inspired two new words, “magufulify” and “magufulification.” He has his critics, who accuse him of political violence, and reportedly jailed a journalist for The Economist.


Remember up above, when we said that Madagascar didn't have the lowest Covid deaths in Africa? Even lower are the deaths in Tanzania, and that nation has more than three times the population of the island nation. Tanzania's president, John Magufuli, made headlines last year when he announced that a paw paw fruit, a goat and a quail tested positive for SARS-Cov-2 (the virus that causes Covid-19). It seems he had secretly sent samples from several animals and substances, even motor oil.

Magufili arranged to buy a supply of Madagascar's treatment, at least right after it was announced. In April 2020, he arranged to send a plane to Madagascar to pick up a supply of Covid Organics. Tanzania has had a few hundred cases, and 21 deaths total from Covid-19 — the sixth fewest deaths in Africa after Sao Tome and Principe, Mauritius, Eritrea, Burundi, the Seychelles and Western Sahara.

On January 27, 2021, Magufili warned his country about accepting a Covid vaccine.

"We have lived for over one year without the virus because our God is able and Satan will always fail. The Health ministry should be cautious, and avoid the temptation to turn us into a country where vaccination trials are conducted freely," he was quoted in Africa News as saying.

"In a certain country, its girl children – aged below 14 years – were vaccinated against what was said to be cervical cancer, but it later emerged that the vaccination was meant to make them infertile," Dr. Magufuli said.

He was most likely referring to the vaccine trials in India sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, in which patients said they had no idea they were being given the vaccine. Politifact has debunked a claim that Indian children had died from the vaccine, claiming it was a revived story that had been shared by an "anti-vaccination" website. But the item, and a real court trial in India, was revealed in the Daily Mail as an investigation.

Madagascar has been the beneficiary of aid from the United States to control its malaria problem, including money from the notorious USAID, known around the world for distributing millions from the United States — and sometimes losing track of the money. Is it possible that Madagascar has more Covid deaths than Tanzania because health officials there are more influenced by the elite global health perspective of skepticism about traditional medicines, while Tanzania, in its independent stance, has stayed freer of Western influence? It's impossible to know for sure. But suffice to say, Covid deaths in both countries are shockingly low.

Like the "Trump drug" hydroxychloroquine, artemisia annua was smothered before it had a chance to breathe. While President Rajoelina had urged the rest of the world to use his tonic as both prophylactic and therapy, very few outside of Africa have even heard of the treatment, much less had access to it. Yet it was used for decades to fight a much more serious disease in the sub-Sahara already.

After reviewing the background, news coverage, and fallout of the emergence of a homegrown Covid therapy born in Africa, we can only conclude one thing:

In maligning the treatment, and slow-walking or refusing to complete clinical trials, the leadership in the northern hemisphere, specifically Europe and America, are complicit in a CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY. And that goes for both hydroxychloroquine, and artemisia annua — both touted by outsiders and businessmen who only asked that they be given a chance.

Bias stems from a limited slice of a whole picture. Bias comes from belief, which is not necessarily fact. When belief is not an actual fact, it comes from an imperfect, incomplete, or distorted picture of reality.


"100 Percent Fed Up reports – Throughout the election, Donald Trump was battered by CCP Virus statistics in order to hurt the American economy and his political campaign. We know that it was shamelessly wielded as a political weapon to prevent President Trump and his supporters from rallying as Antifa and Black Lives Matter burned progressive poor and minority neighborhoods to the ground throughout the entire year. Now that Biden has been installed into the office of president, he promises to increase Covid lockdown measures and extend them further into your ability to travel and force unscientific mask-wearing for at least 100 days."

    Great article getting to the bottom of Covid and safe therapies besides the outrageous exaggerations of it's mortality. All we needed all along was HCQ, antibiotics and zinc. India is distributing this trio of life saving medications to their population. Take the damn masks off!!!!

    Great Article @back2facts ! Thank you for allowing Franz to share it here on RRM. We are all blessed for you contribution, especially one as important as this! The masses deserve to know the whole truth about a made up plannedemic that was meant to scare the bejeebies out of the unsuspecting public. Crimes against Humanity in world wide Tribunals should happen soon I pray!
