A Kenyan preacher based in the UK Climate Wiseman has been charged in court for selling what he called a Covid-19 remedy.

Bishop Climate Irungu Wiseman sold a bottle of a mixture of oils at £91 ($125).

Wiseman, the head of the Kingdom Church in Camberwell, south London, is said to have marketed the mixture of cedar wood and hyssop to protect users from coronavirus.

He was charged in a London court with fraud and unfair trading offences. He pleaded not guilty.

Mr Wiseman made videos that he circulated online claiming the oils were a cure for Covid-19.

There is no cure for Covid-19, according to the World Health Organization.

Mr Wiseman runs the Bishop Climate Ministries, which is part of the Kingdom Church located in South London.
