On World AIDS Day, the news came flashing that South Africa’s top court sides with same-sex marriage.

For Swaziland, I found Reuter’s headline funny: “Swaziland’s much-married king scraps AIDS events
The bottom-line is that, In a royal decree, Swaziland’s King Mswati cancelled the AIDS Day events, saying they would interfere with a month-long traditional ceremony.

What is amazing here is that, Swaziland and South Africa both have some of the highest HIV/AIDS prevalence rate in the world!
