In 2009, SERAP issued an open letter giving the police authorities 14 days to recall the twenty six police recruits expelled for testing positive to HIV/AIDS, just a few days before their graduation.
The Commandant of the Police
College simply called the recruits to his office and told them to go and pack their luggage and go home, because they have HIV/AIDS. As they left his office, two provosts reportedly joined them and ensured that they left the College immediately.
SERAP argued that “the expulsion is discriminatory and unlawful,” and insisted it would go to court unless the police recruits were immediately recalled. However, the police authorities recalled all the police recruits before the end of the 14 days ultimatum given by SERAP.
