The Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) is out to raise R4 million to fund a drive to put Health Minister Manto Tshabala–Msimang out of office.
TAC spokesperson Mark Heywood told the Weekend Argus that the initiative was a public appeal for financial help to put pressure on government to respond properly to HIV/AIDS.
Themba Maseko, government spokesperson, said that it was the president’s prerogative and no organisation could tell him what to do.
However government will still remain focused on accelerating and expanding its comprehensive HIV/AIDS programme, he said.
