KKOG CEO Edouard Joseph was quoted in the Herald as saying: “we have a medicinal research arm at KKOG and patents like this product “Immunite” which helps boost the immune system of those in Africa. Immunite is registered in two countries and sold all over Africa currently through those countries’ medicinal boards, hospitals and pharmacies. It helps in boosting immunity against Covid-19 as those who have died from the pandemic have been those with a weak immune systems.”


New facility hopes to attract 150 scientists

He said “we are very grateful to Zimbabwe for affording us this opportunity and we are going after it. We are very positive of turning this project into the biggest in Southern Africa”. 

KKOG which has its headquarters on Ventura Boulevard in Woodland Hills, California. says it hopes to attract as many as 150 research scientists to Zimbabwe. Besides Covid research, the company hopes to “create new medicines for cancer, Alzheimers, diabetes, Tourettes, PTSD, ADHD and addictions”.

The Herald reports that “All the paper work, the plans and little everything else has been sorted out and KKOG will have its ground breaking ceremony on February 1, for the only laboratory in Southern Africa. All of which would not have been possible without the support of Government from the Vice President Constantino Chiwenga downwards along with the partnership of CBZ Bank. It is envisaged that KKOG will lead in the research because so far, it is the one that has moved farther in the developing medicinal research and subsequent medicine for the cannabis. So, on February I, all roads lead to Msasa and to the subsequent progress. It seems everything is cast in progress”.
