Premier`s big HIV controversy
5 December 2011
The Western Cape Premier has been exposed as being dishonest, in presenting the winner of her Aids lotto as someone who entered the HIV competition. The person who won the competition did not even know he was entering the competition when he had his status checked. He had his status checked as part of the campaign run by SACTWU [clothing union] and the Department of Health. This has been an ongoing programme, where all of the COSATU unions are involved, it is hard work carried out diligently, and not some gimmick.
The sad thing is because no one paid any attention to the Premierís gimmick, she had to try and hi jack the hard work of others. The Premier effectively paid R 100 000 to have her picture in the paper, as she is media greedy, and not around real issues, but around media spin. This money could have made a real difference in the lives of people, who are desperate for jobs and houses.
This Premier is exposing herself everyday as the King with no clothes on
