AIDS: WAR FOR ALL

�Africa is crying the tears of sadness.Women are widowed and children are orphaned.A pandemic has arrived and makes people to despair. A battle for survival has begun and there is no retreat. Each has to fight or die a coward.The war is for everyone, no surrender because we are together in this.

When the sun dusks it brings along questions to minds of many. The homeless ask where to lay their bodies for rest. They are homeless because their parents are gone.Gone, taken by this opportunistic parasite.Young ones cry as their positive mothers can't breastfeed them.Ao! Dibopiwa tse di senang Molato (shame! Creatures without guilt), Dilonyana tsa go lelela babolai (those that may cry even for foes)�

Fa go twe itlhokomeleng re a gakatsega, re tla thanya lomapo lo le tsebeng. E re fa gotwe bo go atlaretse bolwetse. O ganetsane le "boreatsi" ba jone, oba lwese ore baa go akela.Ka dinako dingwe re a re re loilwe, re abele "bonkadilatlha tsa bua" madi a rona.

I do not undermine our believes but face reality.

(When we are told to take care we worsen, we'll wake when it's already late. When told you are positive, we deny and quarrel with doctors.At times we say we are bewitched, we give our money to traditional doctors.)

Lefatshe ka bophara le latlhegetswe ke bompudi (the world has lost Champions). Possibility and probability are now words that do not exist.There is no more hope for good possibility and probability.All that is left is to wonder how the world will look like in years to come.Wake up Africa! Wake up!Lets build the future for our continent, let us build leaders for ourselves. Africa wake up, wake up Africa!
