Let them eat beetroot

‘Let them eat cake.’

We all know what happened to the last woman who told her subjects that. Yes, her head rolled.

‘Let them eat beetroot.’

She may not be a queen but South African Health Minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang knows all about regal disdain.

The TAC have called for her head before but she remains impervious to criticism. President Mbeki maintains a sullen silence on the HIV/AIDS issue and tacitly supports her. But, now that respected members of the international scientific community are baying for blood, we may get a decent response.

Let's hope her head rolls soon!

Great to have you back in action.

Karma will get Manto - she'll choke on a yam one day.

It's not the beetroot alone that does the trick, it's the lemons and the garlic too. I'm not holding my breath until she loses her job - nobody could survive without air that long. Unless she has herbal remedies for suffocation, too.

I don't think I'll ever understand that woman's attitude towards HIV and medication.
