Mail & Guardian Highlights Mandela's Evolution as AIDS Activist
December 13, 2013
The Mail & Guardian examines Nelson Mandela's evolution as an AIDS activist, writing, "After stepping down as president, Mandela openly regretted not doing more about the pandemic, but also about the lack of time to do so." The newspaper adds, "The South African Press Agency reported that he said: 'It's no use crying over spilt milk ... I had no time ... I had to concern myself with nation-building.'" The newspaper examines Mandela's public speeches on HIV/AIDS, and includes comments from Mark Heywood, head of the advocacy group Section27, and Constitutional Court judge and HIV advocate Edwin Cameron (Malan, 12/13).
