South Africa: firing of Deputy Health Minister Madlala-Routledge.

[Article in English, French, Russian]


On 8 August 2007, South Africa's President Thabo Mbeki dismissed the Deputy Health Minister, Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge. The President's office stated that the dismissal was because Madlala-Routledge had traveled without permission to Madrid to attend the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative Conference. HIV/AIDS activists and other supporters of Madlala-Routledge believe that the Madrid incident merely provided Mbeki with a long sought-after excuse to remove his Deputy Health Minister.
