Mlambo-Ngcuka proud of Aids fight
Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka says she is incredibly proud of the progress made in fighting Aids.
DAVOS - Former deputy president Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka has told Eyewitness News she is incredibly proud of the progress South Africa has made in fighting Aids.
She is currently at the World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting in Davos in her current position as a leader of the United Nations gender programme.
Mlambo-Ngcuka used to chair the South African National Aids Council and was seen as the major part in the process that saw a truce being reached between Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) and the government of former president Thabo Mbeki.
Now she says she is impressed by what South Africa has done.
"The strategic plan that minister Motsoaledi has taken to a higher level was initiated during the time when I was also in the council. I'm really proud of what the country has achieved."
Mlambo-Ngcuka says she has now moved on from the drama that saw her losing her position within government and the ANC.
