Former US President Clinton Visits South Africa


Bill Clinton
Former U.S. President Bill Clinton is in South Africa, the third stop of a six-nation African tour to evaluate the AIDS epidemic.

While in Johannesburg, Mr. Clinton is also due to help celebrate the 87th birthday of former South African President Nelson Mandela.

On Monday, the former president opened a pediatric AIDS clinic in Lesotho to help its government treat children with HIV/AIDS.

The clinic will provide a supply of life-prolonging anti-retroviral medicine for sick children.

Some 20,000 children in Lesotho are infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

Mr. Clinton has also made a brief stop in Mozambique. He will later travel to Tanzania, Kenya and Rwanda.

Some information for this report provided by AFP.
