Doctors Condemn Minister Mukupe’s ARV Slur

The Zimbabwe Association of Doctors for Human Rights (ZADHR) has condemned Deputy Minister of Finance Terrence Mukupe remarks on antiretroviral (ARVs) saying they fuel stigma against HIV and Aids. Mukupe made the remarks when he attacked former Minister of Finance Tendai Biti during a radio debate. In a statement, ZADHR said,

For the purposes of denigrating and casting the listenership of StarFM against the person of Mr Tendai Biti, Deputy Minister Mukupe asked Mr Biti if he had taken his anti-retroviral (ARVs).

ZADHR reiterates that political leaders must be torchbearers in the fight against HIV and Aids and associated stigma and discrimination. Hon Mukupe’s utterances cast aspersions in this fight…Stigma and discrimination remain a threat to the fight against HIV and Aids and, as ZADHR, we call upon all leaders, political, religious and community alike to take a stand against this vice.

  1. This guy must be fired he said he has good working relationship with minister of finance Chinamasa My own perception is that he is a,Chinamasa confidante if this is the case maybe ED respects Chinamasa and I feel that Chinamasa must be instrumental in sacking this boy if he does not want he Chinamasa must fall on his sword. MUGABE BROUGHT JONATHAN MOYO AND MUJURU WAS ALLWAYS COMPLAINNING ABOUT JONATHAN TODAY HE HAS REAKED HAVOC and is not stopping

  2. The hypocrisy is something prevailing in Zimbabwe I remember when ED wax poisoned and rushed to SA Dr Parerenyatwa disclosed ED was suffering from Explosive Diarhorea that was a very unbefiting If I was in front of Parerenyatwa u would have punched him in the face people should have their privacy

  3. Until we have educated and knowledgeable leaders we will continue to be a loughing stock on the continent .
    The boy Mukupe shud be charged for reckless rantings
