Deputy Health Minister
Hi gays and gals and especially LoneWolf :) also HIV poz here, I read your posts LoneWolf (thanks for being so open) and admire the forum expert for encouraging HIV-related posts but this is my first post here: How do people feel about the firing of our deputy Minister of Health? I am disgusted.... just when I thought there was a bit of sense in the Government's response to HIV - in spite of psycho Manto and her veggies - her deputy get's fired. W've just taken twenty steps backwards and sadly psycho Manto has won against all odds. Health care in our country is at an all-time low and I really thrust that the deputy minister was set up. 100% sure, there's no doubt. And this isn't only about HIV, its about all of us - everyone who pays taxes and votes and gives a damn about the future of our country. A very sad event in our history and further prooof of just how little the government cares about HIV and AIDS. And how little they cate about the majority of South Africans. A few people are clinging to power against reality - and it SO smacks of Zimbabwe to me.... I'm very worried. This doesn't bode well for our future.
