Achmat demands TAC apology

Prominent activist Zackie Achmat has demanded the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) retract a statement it released in the wake of allegations that he attempted to cover up sexual harassment accusations at Equal Education.

Achmat is well known for his work as a founder of the HIV activist organisation, which spearheaded the campaign for universal access to antiretrovirals during Thabo Mbeki’s presidency.

“TAC was an organisation for which I and others would have given our lives,” Achmat told the Mail & Guardian this week. “I hope we can resolve it amicably.”

In the letter of demand addressed to the TAC, Achmat said the organisation’s statement constitutes “criminal defamation”.
