Minister of Health Aaron Motsoaledi has called leaders from all walks of life to be the first in line for the massive HIV testing programme set to start next month.

Motsoaledi was addressing a seminar on HIV/AIDS in Johannesburg today.

He said South Africans have their heads buried deep in the sand regarding their HIV status.

Newsflash News agency reports that delegates in attendance gave him a standing ovation.

This is when the former Limpopo Education MEC said leaders, from presidents to principals to chief executive officers, had to be the first in line to know if they had the HI virus, or not.

He added that the country is burning and the leaders must come out.
