  • Here’s What We Actually Know About The Pill That Prevents HIV

    On Thursday, President Obama signed an executive order laying out the national HIV/AIDS strategy for the next five years. The plan is fairly similar to the old strategy, with one big exception: It focuses on a pill that can prevent people from becoming infected with HIV. The once-a-day pill, Truvada — used to prevent HIV in what’s known as pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) — was approved by the FDA in 2012. When taken every day, studies show, Truvada reduces the likelihood of contracting HIV by 92%.

Durban - Soon after Comrade Sbu Ndebele was released from Robben Island I remember him venturing forth on one aspect of the tragedy of apartheid: that African South Africans often adopted the PHD mentality when trying to demonstrate their intellectual prowess. Of course those PHDs were comrades who Put Him/Her Down (PHD) rather than engage substantively in advance of the National Democratic Revolution and the struggle for socialism.

    The 39-year-old Los Angeles woman was found dead in a room at a luxury Cape Town hotel on Wednesday with faeces on her head and a curling iron next to her body. Diego Dougherty Novella, a 41-year-old Guatemalan arrested in connection with the murder and being held at Pollsmoor prison, appeared in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Friday. Police sources close to the investigation said they were trying to establish the true identity of the man known as Novella because the passport found on the murder scene - a room at the exclusive Camps Bay Retreat boutique hotel - does not contain a South African port-of-entry stamp. In several overseas publications, Novella, who has links to Mexico and Italy, is also referred to as Diego Guarte, who is barred from entering the US for reasons that are still unclear.

  • Zimbabwe: The Rise and Fall of Tsvangirai

    FROM a trailblazing labour leader who transformed into a fiery democracy activist who came within a whisker of deposing one of Africa's strongmen, to the sorry sight of his furniture strewn outside his house pending seizure, Morgan Tsvangirai has lived across extremes. The leader of the opposition MDC-T took the gamble and challenged President Robert Mugabe, the only leader Zimbabwe has known since majority rule from Britain almost four decades ago, to form a political party "literally" out of the ashes of the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) in 1999. At his peak, he called on Mugabe to "go peacefully or we will remove you violently". Tsvangirai had Mugabe's military generals out of their barracks sensing power slipping through their fingers, leading to the late General Vitalis Zvinavashe's infamous "straight jacket statement" hours before Zimbabweans trooped to the polls in 2002.
