I am angry, disgusted, saddened, disheartened, furious and more at my president.
He has acted like a stubborn small man. Who cannot cope with critcism, with being proven wrong, with having a strong woman hold an opposing opinion to him.
His actions dictate that should you go against him or his cronies, all power will be taken from you.
Back when Deputy Health Minister Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge took over Health Minister, Manto Tshabalala-Msimang's duties, she started to make some impressive changes in the government's stance on HIV/AIDS.
And it was back then that I recall some AIDS activists saying, good for her!, but we wonder how long Mbeki will tolerate this.
Wow. He coped for 10 whole months.
Then she became too vocal on the state of South Africa's public health - by calling Frere Hospital and the numbers of babies dying there a disgrace and a national emergency.
And so he sought any petty means to push her out.
He has disgraced our country. And we can all look forward to the AIDS epidemic continuing and to the state of our national health becoming worse and sicker by the month.
Madlala-Routledge is about to make her statement on the radio. Gotta go.
