Independent researchers, advocate Anthony Brink and Chris Rawiins, have come out in support of former president Thabo Mbeki's views on HIV/Aids.

Brink, who has written several research books on the treatment of HIV including his most noted book Debating AZT: Mbeki and the AIDS drug controversy, said Mbeki was correct in what he wrote in his recent open letter.

"What he [Mbeki] said was the truth. The moon isn't made of cheese and a virus doesn't cause a syndrome," Brink said.

Brink said the outrage at Mbeki's stance on HIV came from white liberal establishments who had bought a story sold by America.

"The outrage comes from the people who are our 'friends'. These are the white liberalist establishment, the principally colonised and Christian Africans who bought the story from America." he said.

Brink said he and Rawlins had all the information which supported Mbeki's view on HIV and Aids on their Treatment Information Group (TIG) website.
