Within days of taking office, Zuma sacks Health Minister who restored sanity to AIDS policy after Mbeki

with one comment

From The Guardian

Jacob Zuma, the new South African president, today sacked the health minister praised by campaigners for turning around the country’s disastrous policy on Aids.

Announcing his first cabinet, Zuma moved Barbara Hogan from the health ministry to the less influential public enterprises portfolio.

Hogan is replaced by Aaron Motsoaledi, a provincial education minister who is a medical doctor.

Some analysts had predicted Hogan would be ousted after she publicly criticised the leadership of the African National Congress (ANC) earlier this year for barring the Dalai Lama from a conference on peace and reconciliation.

  1. Well,if a Man who believed that having a shower would prevent him having Aids,what kind of Leadership would you really expect? A Leader who lobbied for a brutal Rebel movement to be accepted as a Political,knowing that this same movement had killed Infants and many civilians,what kind of Role model Governance would we expect?
