Today as he celebrates his birthday, we thought it would be nice for us to look back at some of his past life highlights.

For fraudulently claiming to have a herbal cure for HIV and Aids, a court found a popular self-styled prophet guilty of fraud and fined him $700 (£540).

Walter Magaya admitted to marketing an unapproved medicine in violation of the Medicines Control Act.

In November, police apprehended him and seized a natural medication that he claimed could heal HIV and Aids patients.

In Sub-Saharan Africa, Zimbabwe has the sixth highest HIV prevalence rate.

According to UN data compiled in 2016, almost 1.3 million people were living with HIV.
