Zuma: ‘Whoonga’ Does Not Contain ARVs

Experts from the University of KwaZulu-Natal have found that the dangerous recreational drug ‘Whoonga’ is not made of crushed ARVs mixed with other drugs, says President Zuma

President Jacob Zuma says experts from the University of KwaZulu-Natal have found that the dangerous recreational drug ‘Whoonga’ is not made of crushed antiretroviral drugs (ARV) mixed with other drugs.

Speaking at the first day of the two day 2nd Biennial Summit on substance abuse in Durban, Zuma states instead, the drug contains heroin mixed with rat poison and other chemicals.

He warns that, "Perpetuating such inaccuracies is dangerous as it may make drug addicts steal ARVs, which will put the lives of people on treatment for HIV at risk."
