"I Still Stand By My Words" - Joyce Dzidzo Mensah

Former HIV/AIDS Ambassador Joyce Dzidzo Mensah has in an interview with livefmghana.com said that she has not regretted coming out to speak the truth. “I have not regretted coming out to speak the truth; I still stand by my words and I will never go contrary to what I have said. With me coming out to set the record straight, I was aware of what I was doing, whatever information I put out there, I knew where I was going and no matter how hard it was for me, I just had to tell the truth and do the right thing,” she said. She added: “I still stand by my words and I have no intention of going back on my words. I had a lot of backlash for what I did, people were calling me all kinds of names, and some said I had stolen this country’s money which I know I did not. The police are still investigating. “The truth is, I did not benefit financially from my ambassadorial deal, all the outreach programs I organised, I did it myself by seeking my own sponsorship. All that I had was the name as an HIV/AIDS ambassador.” “And not even all these names calling will make me regret or change my mind. We live in a country where the slightest mistake you make erases all the good things you have done for people. I mean the fact that I have been able to save children, educate people and assisted them in taking precautions, i am satisfied,” she said.
