And she confirmed to MGOSI.co.za that the pill was for HIV but refused to say whether she is HIV or not, citing that the only person who can ask her about such is her man.
“The person to ask me that is my boyfriend that I am fu**ing. Whether it’s true or not I am a public figure and I use my platforms to teach. This is how I make money,” said Zodwa Wabantu.
“What Time Do You Drink Your Michael Jackson💊💊💊❓❓❓❓ You Scared of a Pill or Usaba Abantu Bazothini🤷♀️🤷♀️ Owabantu👑,” said Zodwa Wabantu.
According to research conducted by MGOSI.co.za if your doctor prescribed HIV medication that looks like the pill in the picture and has M171 embossed, this is likely to be Tribuss.
Tribuss is a generic version of Atripla and it is manufactured by Aspen. It is widely used in South Africa.
Just like Atripla, Tribuss contains three active HIV drugs – efavirenz, tenofovir-DF, and emtricitabine.
Sometimes Tribuss is mainly used as an HIV treatment by people who are HIV positive. However, this is an older treatment that is steadily being switched to newer drugs in many countries.
According to further research, it’s stated that some countries use Tribuss as a way to prevent HIV after recent risk for people who are HIV negative. This way of using HIV meds is called PEP. Tribuss is not recommended as PEP in most countries though because of the risk of side effects that are higher in people who are HIV negative.
Zodwa Wabantu has vowed that she will continue to use her popularity, including social media platforms to teach.
