Aids will wipe out all our gains - Mandela - with Bill Gates
The youth should play a leading role in a social revolution against HIV and Aids, similar to the one against apartheid, former president Nelson Mandela said on Monday.

"South Africans are beyond arguments about statistics or debates about causality and controversies about the relative efficacy of medication," Mandela said at a youth forum in Johannesburg, also attended by his wife Graca Machel and Bill and Melinda Gates.

"Aids is clearly a disaster, effectively wiping out the development gains of the past decades and sabotaging the future."

I sure wish Bill or Nelson were President of the United States now!
