Nearly 30% of schoolgirls across South Africa are HIV+. That's almost 1 out of every 3 girls. Just think about that number for a minute, because that's a lot of young females in their teens becoming HIV positive.......and who are going to be a burden on the country later on.
Only 4% of schoolboys are HIV+.
So, what does that tell you? That there are some very, very promiscuous boys/men going around having sex with many, many young girls - as young as 10 years old.
The Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi blamed the statistics on "sugar daddies".
Across the country, 94 000 schoolgirls fell pregnant in 2011 ; 77 000 had abortions.
There's the morality and the future of the country, gone down the tubes. Instead of these girls going to school and getting an education so that they can become productive members of society, they instead run to the nearest bed (or school desk), get the bargain two-for-the-price-of-one combination of HIV and pregnancy; most run off to get rid of their "mistake", but keep the AIDS. And then of course spread the disease to their next admirer.
Now you have the Health Minister saying that "we can no longer live like this". Well, good luck with that seeing as this has always been "Black culture" and not to be spoken about unless you want to be labelled a racist.
It's only a problem now because they can no longer sleep with 1/3 of the young girls!

At least 28 percent of schoolgirls across the country are HIV positive, according to statistics released by Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi.
The Sowetan reported that only 4% of boys at schools were HIV positive.
Motsoaledi released the figures at a National Council of Provinces "taking Parliament to the people" event in Carolina, Mpumalanga.
Sugar daddies to blame
"It is clear that it is not young boys who are sleeping with these girls. It is old men. We must take a stand against sugar daddies because they are destroying our children," Motsoaledi was quoted as saying.
He said 94 000 schoolgirls fell pregnant in 2011 across the country.
"About 77 000 girls had abortions at public facilities. We can no longer live like that. We want to put an end to it."
Some of the girls who fell pregnant - and tested positive for HIV - were reportedly between the ages of 10 and 14.
Motsoaledi said of the 52 districts in the country, the Gert Sibande district, in Mpumalanga, topped the list of HIV positive people.
