Mr David Ssenfuka, the proprietor of Leonia-NNN-Medical Research and Diagnostic Center Limited dragged government to court for failure to clear his herbal formula that he says treats cancer and diabetes.
High Court Judge Esta Nambayo heard that the parties are in negotiations to see that they settle the matter.
"This matter had come up for mention, however the parties are in advanced stages of negotiations and we feel there are high chances of this matter being settled out of court," Said Mr Kyobe William the herbalist lawyer after the court
Kyobe adds that, “We pray for a short adjournment to conclude the negotiations and when we are done we shall come back with the consent."
