Let’s Move On, Tutu says of AIDS Debate

Pointing fingers at the administration of former president Thabo Mbeki is not helpful in dealing with South Africa's HIV/AIDS problems, says Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Pointing fingers at the administration of former president Thabo Mbeki is not helpful in dealing with South Africa's HIV/AIDS problems. This is according to Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

Tutu points out that, "I just think it's enough to say, we have had a disaster and ... how do we ensure that we don't repeat what we know happened."

Tutu’s comments follow renewed controversy in recent weeks over the HIV/AIDS policy pursued by Mbeki and his administration, which flirted with AIDS denialists, backed quack remedies and was markedly reluctant to roll out antiretroviral drugs.

"It was a bad policy, most people admit that ... Let's move on," says Tutu.
