Anglia News Sport Soccer Football FIFA South Africa World Cup 2010 The Vuvuzela

South Africa had given to the world the Vuvuzela during the FIFA world cup – it was a musical instrument that can create a din like the buzzing of bees. The land of Vuvuzela has now released the Whoonga – it is a drug with a difference.

The Whoonga is a concoction made up of the pills that are used to treat patients who are suffering from HIV+. These pills are stolen from genuine patients, mixed with rat poison, detergent powder and added to drugs that give hallucinogenic effects and sold to give the buyers real value for their money. It seems the theft is done when the patient leaves the medical center with his quota of the medicine – therefore, they have decided to visit the medical center in groups and not singly.

The pills are distributed free of cost by the authorities but are being stolen from the genuine sufferers and channelized into this evil activity. Thereby, the rehabilitation of the patients is facing bottlenecks.
