Spray goes astray

National health officials accused of incompetence.

The importers of a controversial “immune-boosting” spray that was impounded by the Medicines Control Council (MCC) four days before its official Eastern Cape roll-out to HIV-positive patients with TB, say they have fallen victim to the confusion or incompetence of officials at the national Department of Health.

Referring to the recent intervention of the police and inspectors of the MCC  (nose174), Guy Saulez, aggrieved director of Saulez Agencies CC, importer and distributor of the supposedly immune-boosting Immutides Spray protested: “We have not put a foot wrong but we’ve been absolutely castigated and had our company name emblazoned all over the place. It’s not a scam, we’re not corrupt and there are no tenders involved.”
