Winstone Zulu, the first Zambian to go public on his HIV positive status, has died

Time Posted: October 12, 2011 9:59 pm

Winstone zulu

Celebrated HIV/AIDS activist, Winstone zulu has died. Family friend and fellow HIV/AIDS activist, Gezepi Chakulunta has confirmed the death of Mr Zulu to Muvi TV news.

Mr Zulu, who is arguably the first person to have come in public to reveal his positive HIV status, died in the early hours of today at the UTH.

Winstone Zulu was born in 1964 in Lusaka, Zambia, the sixth of thirteen children. After being diagnosed with HIV in 1990, he became the first individual in Zambia to publicly acknowledge his HIV status. In 1997, he contracted TB and, with access to effective medicines and treatment, was cured of the disease within that same year.

During his life, tragically, he has watched four of his brothers die from TB as a result of a lack of access to the anti-TB drugs that would have cured them and extended their lives.

These experiences made Winstone one of the preeminent global advocates on the dangers posed by the increasing spread of TB. As one of the few African activists involved in the global health movement on AIDS from its earliest stages, he was able to recognize the threat that TB poses on the modest successes of HIV/AIDS control.

Nelson Mandela said of Winstone, “There have been so few TB survivors who have stepped forward to share their stories. We need more advocates like Winstone to tell the world about TB and the effect it has on so many millions of people.”

“TB treatment gives patients more time. If my brothers had survived TB they might have lived long enough to access HIV drugs like me. They shouldn’t have died.” Winstone Zulu said at the time.

Speaking at numerous international conferences and events, Winstone sounded the alarm on the links between HIV/AIDS and TB and advocates for increased financial resources and improved programs to combat TB and TB-HIV.

Winstone’s experiences and actions make him a leader in TB advocacy and spoke volumes to the social attention and political will that could be generated by just one individual using his voice.

Mr Zulu is also noted as one of the pioneers of the establishment of Kara counseling.

Meanwhile, Treatment Advocacy and Literacy Campaign Country Coordinator, Felix Mwanza has described Mr Zulu’s death as a great loss.

    Fair thee well my friend. Sadly you opposed mandatory testing at presentation in hospital. For Zambia to overcome this scourge, every person who goes to hospital must know his status. If we can put 80% of those with HIV and CD4< 500 and abnormal CD4:CD8 ratio, we will be well on the way to stopping the disease. With recent rapid TB test, this should also be included. Zambian doctors should stop treating TB as malaria, and then community acquired pneumonia and then TB by exclusion.

      Kijo please ignore “Comments only where necessary’. He comment was definitly unnecessary as you are quite right in using the phrase “It takes two to TANGLE”. Where as the origins of the phrase is indeed from the Italian dance “Tango” which involves two people dancing intimately, the phrase has evolved to be used in circumstances where to people engage in an activity that can not take place without both of them e.g sexual intercourse. So in this context the more modern and widely used version ‘Takes two to tangle’ was just as appropriate as using ‘TANGO’. I hope you will find my comment necessary…. hope we wont have to tangle or is it tango about this!!

    But what actually killed him? Is it the HIV/AIDS or the poisonous ARV drugs he was taking? Do ARVs actually prolong life or its just the placebo effect? How do you separate the effect of good nutrition from the effect of ARVs on an HIV positive person who has been taking ARVs and has been on good nutrition?

      Awe, don’t be foolish. I even know someone who is not eating well, but he went from looking like a skeleton, unable to walk, to being healthy and able to dance, from the ARV’s. There is enough research out there to show that any antiretroviral drugs that are approved by the World Health Organization and other organizations have far more than a placebo effect. It is not just good nutrition, otherwise, how would healthy people that eat well get so sick? The studies control for other variables such as good nutrition and the placebo effect. I’m surprised you don’t know this.

    Too bad for winstone zulu. Thanks for standing up and being a man and inspiring many by creating awareness on the perils and dangers of AIDS. As for Mushota, as true as what you say is, you obviously seem to have time and place issues. Now’s not the time or the place for those comments true as they may be. The problem we have in zambia is we live very unchristian lives while pretending to be so upright and pious. Most of us are in denial of the reality that is AIDS . put your hands up if you have had a relative who died from HIV. it is real and that is the lesson our dear departed brother winstone tried to teach.

We need to ask what went wrong with Mr Zulu, HIV with ARVs becomes a chronic manageable illness and one should not just die like that; maybe he needed 3rd line drugs etc where are you advocates lets save our heroes. On Mushota, yes sound the warning so that as pipo’s emotions are high, hammer the message so that it sinks, too late for winston but you can save a life of someone else.

    Its sad that Winston has answered the Lords call at this time. However, his done his work and what remains is that we who are living to take each work that Winston said to ACT on it and ensure that we live health without fear. We encourage each other and help those who need help. we need to secure that participation of each and every individual is 100% and then we have the Government and others to come in and help.
    God Bless you all for the support and we shall pray for his Soul. MHSRIP

    I have always admired the courage of this man.Thinking about being HIV positive is one thing and testing positive and coming out in the open is another thing.I was very young when this man cam out in the open about his HIV status and I remember me and my sisters making fun of him saying he was just lying that he was HIV positive becoz he never used to look sick.Back then an HIV positive was only known to be thin.Thanks to ART people can live long.Long enough to even see their children grow up into teenagers.

    This guy has contributed to saving lives from HIV infections through his advocacy. He fought against stigmatization by confronting it with the declaration of his positive status. I wonder how many Zambians both living with and without the HIV have come out so strongly and fought the scourge in the manner Mr. Zulu did. For me, the man deserves to be honored for his efforts. For sure, he is a national hero!

    Rest now Mr Zulu. You did your work and your message was received. We need proper drugs in Zambia, we need to treat curable diseases and keep Zambians healthy. We ALL have HIV. We all have it, only in some people it turns positive. AIDS is like cancer, some people get some people don’t. Hundreds of Thousands of people in Europe and America suffer from cancer, it is so common now that it looked on like a normal illness. But in Africa TB, Malaria and diarrhoa are labelled AIDS

    Mr.W.Zulu deserves to be remembered.He withstood all the mocking and jeering from the kaponyas of Lusaka as they nicknamed him ‘Imbila yabulanda’.Infact he outlived most the critics.
    THE FACT IS EACH DAY TAKES US CLOSER TO THE GRAVE.
    ARE YOU READY TO MEET YOUR SAVIOUR?

    MAY HIS SOUL REST IN ETERNAL PEACE .

    He will be greatly missed. Many of us are either infected or affected. TB can be cured if one adheres to treatment. HIV or no HIV all of us are bound to die but whats important is that we live positively for the betterment of society. MHSRIP

It now remains with us to lead responsible lives so that on that day, we will be able to give an account according to scripture. Sleep in peace dear one.
