I don't know why but when I was in primary school, one of my teachers before spanking you, would tell you to turn and give the 'nyama ya serikali' (your butt). This Swazi MP just reminded me of that. LOL. Imagine how crazy things get during the period of trial and error trying to find an answer for the unknown? ay! It's like being thrown into a strange dark room and asked to explain what you see in there? This HIV/AIDS has brought a handful of it's own misery. It needs to be laid to rest ASAP with its predecessors - polio, chicken pox, whooping cough, measles, etc and swine flu, now I am not very sure if the latter is in or out of the list?? hmmm...
A Swaziland parliamentarian has apologized after calling for HIV-positive people to be branded on the buttocks to stop the spread of the virus ravaging the country.
Timothy Myeni drew widespread criticism after telling a parliamentarians' workshop in Swaziland that the move would enable people to check partners for a warning stamp before sex.
"I'm very sorry. If you need me to show a sign of how sorry I am, I'm ready," SAPA news agency quoted Myeni as telling a news conference in Johannesburg on Thursday.
Critics say Swaziland King Mswati III, who chose a new wife last year at a traditional Reed Dance, sets a bad example by encouraging polygamy in a country with one of the world's highest HIV/AIDS prevalence rates.
