My Short Theory of AIDS in South Africa

2017-03-30 07:39

I have been tryung to understand how AIDS moved from a fresh discovery in rge US to being the worst epidemic South Africa has ever seen and frankly, it does not make sense.

I cannot draw any line, any link or any logical conclusion to justify AIDS death and HIV infection statistics in this country.

After giving this some thought i think and i believe The legacy of AIDS in SA was not only man-made but a political strategy and a weapon that might have been conceptualized by the apartheid government.

I believe that in the late 80's the apartheid government realized its imminent demise and on the eve years of relinquishing power, came with a strategy of weakening the Black population in SA.

I believe the apartheid government might have deliberately mass infected black people in SA with AIDS and they used mining cities as their epicenter and core areas. They used towns like Welkom and Rustenburg because of the movement of blacks at that time.

At that time AIDS had just been discovered in the US and prospects of a cure were proven to be atleast 40 years away, which was an advantage to this government. The apartheid government could not use chemical weapons, biological weapons or any lethal destructive force but this alternative was an easy one.

My theory is also backed by that SA poverty levels, population size and density cannot warrant the number of people that died of AIDS in the early 90s. Think about this.
