To the residents of Karamoja region in the eastern part of Uganda, Camel urine is priceless and the reason is somewhat awkward.
According to them, Camel urine helps them to stay healthy and cures terminal diseases such as HIV AIDS.
“This urine, you use three times every day, in the morning, noon and night. If symptoms persist, you must use it for four months without missing using same prescription. You then visit a doctor. If you still feel pain in that month, don’t worry it will vanish,” said Idriss Shaban, a camel urine seller.
The World Health Organisation has however urged people to refrain from drinking camel urine which according to them, causes the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, a viral respiratory disease which can prove fatal.
The Ugandan government has still not made any follow up concerning the health benefits of camel urine, according to reports.
But this will only be done when it is scientifically proven though it remains a hope for many who overlook the risks.
