This minister deserves praise

Finally we have someone in government who knows what they are talking about. I applaud Deputy Minister Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge for speaking her mind about the Aids epidemic destroying our country.

It's a pity though that, despite freedom of speech, people still camouflage their opinions because their bosses are "gagging" them.

Minister Manto Tshabalala- Msimang should reconsider opening her mouth about HIV-Aids in public, because as a society we expect our ministers to be knowledgeable about their departments.

I accept that garlic is nutritious, but I believe it can work well if used with the antiretrovirals our government has been very stingy with.

Our country is run by people who seem not to care.

These are people's lives - doesn't anybody care? If there is a slight chance that ARVs will give people a chance to live longer, why then are they not given these drugs?
