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 shenanigans around Nkandla continue to pour out into the public. Reports in the Sunday Times suggesting President Jacob Zuma lashed the Public Protector Thuli Madonsela make for amusing reading. Zuma is reportedly peeved because he feels Madonsela has made an unfair innuendo about Police Minister Nathi Nhleko, who has exonerated the president from any wrongdoing. Nhleko has found Zuma does not need to pay back any portion of the millions spent on supposed security upgrades at his private residence in Nkandla.

  • 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%.
