And the award for world’s biggest hypocrite goes to…
Manto Tshabalala-Msimang. Yes indeed, Manto is now using the media as a scapegoat, saying that if the government’s aids prevention campaign fails it is because of their reporting of Zuma’s ‘showering to reduce the infection risk’ tactic.
Am i reading this right? The woman who tells people to eat garlic and african potatoes instead of taking their ARVs, the woman who says that african people should be allowed to use african remedies instead of ARVs, even if they are untested and unproven, the woman who is single-handedly responsible for more confusion about aids medication than anyone else in the country, is saying the media will be responsible if the campaign fails?
Manto, the fault will be yours and no one else’s. As a health minister, you have done a piss-poor job. On the other hand, you’re pretty damn good at genocide through misinformation.
