      oh please stop right there.

      Why should it be mentioned? None of your business or anybody else.

      mentioned by who wena sphukuphuku. Do u think the journalist who wrote the article has access to patients files. Illnesses will always be a matter between a patient and a doctor and NOT YOU

      A father has lost his child and your main concern is that the cause of his child's death has not been disclosed!I mean really!!! Just a little bit of sensitivity wouldn't be too much to ask for...

    This 'long illness' is really still very high in kzn. As adults we need to take the precaution procedures seriously as there is no cure available.

      mamolefes - 2012-06-21 06:26

      It is true what you say about the 'long illness': SA *the whole country* is affected and really need people to be responsible enough to prevent it. It is not only high in KZN, but also in other provinces, and this should come to an end. We should stop spreading it.

    nilale ngenxeba noma libuhlungu ngithi dudu emndenini nasezihlotsheni zakwa SHENGE ngithi dudu.

    It is actually meant to be mentioned, that way, when someone else who has been playing it unsafe gets to learn a lesson from the death. Unstigmatise HIV and aids while giving a lesson to the ones still playing in fire.

  • winston.mullany - 2012-06-21 09:25

    Hope Mr Buthelezi has all the strength to cope with this. A father should never have to bury his son.

  • Erena - 2012-06-21 11:15

    Another long illness!
