Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble...

Because of our Minister of Health, Manto Tshabalala-Msimang, South Africa’s HIV/AIDS policy is the laughing stock of the international community. Whereas no one disputes the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle when having HIV, her policy on the matter is positively medieval. A healthy lifestyle can prolong someone with HIV’s life dramatically, however, beetroot, garlic, olive oil, lemons and the African Potato cannot replace anti-retrovirals. (Maybe if you put it in a cauldron with lacewing flies, boomslang skin and grated mandrake roots. LOL) Our Minister of Health is also a thief (she stole from patients and the hospital in Botswana where she was administrator in the 70’s) She is an alcoholic and abused her position to get a donor liver quickly when hers couldn’t take the abuse any longer. She does not appreciate her new lease on life, for she still drinks. Please visit sackmanto.co.za (see link on the right) and fill in the petition form. (For fellow SA’s – check the cool Zapiro cartoons on the site!)

Love the work Shapiro does. It's amazing how he can sum up current affairs in one little picture, at the same time portraying just how crazy it is.

With regard to Manto. I have no problem signing a petition but honestly, I've got more chance to have tea with the Pope, than we have of getting her sacked. She obviously has got some hold on the president. Mmmmm.....maybe she stole his little black book and is holding him to ransom?

Yes, I know the chances are little, having said that... I can't stand the woman. Even if we only manage to irritate her, it is still worth doing
