TAC KZN picket outside HIVEX office

‘This is a sad day for South Africa.’ This is how Clive Fox Harvey, started his speech after receiving the memorundum.

More than 400 TAC members and partners (CEGAA, DrumAide) picketed outside HIVEX offices in Commercial City today. They demanded HIVEX to stop misleading the community and PLWHIV by making false claims about curing the HIV.

The weather was 28 degrees but Comrades stood tirelesslly outside HIVEX offices singing and waiting patiently for Clive to come out. Dr Manzini from UKZN gave us a talk about how the HIvirus works in the body and also about the dangers of defaulting,

Clive came out about thirty minutes late than he was suppose to. He claimed that TAC was misinformed abouit HIVEX and claimed that he had invited TAC to come and engage them about HIVEX, but TAC had repeatedly ignored those request.

We agreed to meet with him next year in a round table discussion about HIVEX.
