The Zambian authorities have ordered a local brewery to stop producing an energy drink that give rise to a prolonged erection in a consumer.
In a letter dated December 28, the NDA states that the drink contained sildenafil citrate, which is used to treat erectile dysfunction. The drink is made by Revin Zambia Limited, a company based in Ndola, northern Zambia.
The chief executive of the company, Vikas Kapoor, told new agency ‘BBC’ that, to his knowledge, it contains no medicinal substance. The Zambian authorities have opened an investigation into the drink in question.
They announce that Natural Power SX’s raw materials, as well as the finished product, will be analysed. “The results of this survey will be released to the public,” the Zambian authorities said.
Their Ugandan counterparts ordered the seizure of the drink.
