Singer Bebe Cool who is TB ambassador has today met with UNAIDS Executive Director Winnie Byanyima and UNAIDS Country Director Dr. Karusa Kiragu.
Hon. Byanyima expressed gratitude towards Bebe Cool’s charity activities, especially his role in the fight against TB.
“Today at a Global Fund meeting on TB, I had the pleasure of meeting the UNAIDS Executive Director/Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations Hon. Winnie Byanyima along with the UNAIDS Country Director Dr. Karusa Kiragu with whom we shared a word or two about the prosperity of our country. Hon. Byanyima expressed gratitude towards my charity activities, especially my role in the fight against TB. In an attempt to be humorous, she claimed that while she loved my music alot, she did not like my side of politics; to which I explained to her that not everyone can subscribe to the same political ideology and that someone had to stand up for the silent majority.
In this Global Fund meeting, we are lobbying for more funds to be allocated towards awareness and subsequently prevention against TB as opposed to waiting for people to get sick so they can access treatment. #ENDTBug,” Bebe Cool posted.
