1999 Sydney Peace Prize recipient Archbishop Desmond Tutu has blamed the South African government’s delay in introducing a national HIV/Aids treatment plan for the preventable deaths from HIV/Aids.

Tutu said the anti-aparthied heroes would be shocked by the devastation wrecked by the HIV/Aids pandemic. “They would be glad that a more realistic plan was in place, but they would lament that too many died unnecessarily because of bizarre theories held [by those] on high,” Reuters reported Tutu as saying.
