The answer to your question is ...

Red-capped mangabey and the greater spot-nosed monkey were carriers of SIV (Simian Immunodeficiency Virus). The monkeys were eaten by chimps which is likely how they acquired the monkey viruses. The hybrid virus then spread through the chimpanzee species and was later transmitted to humans to become HIV-1.

The Green Monkey theory was debunked in 1998 although AIDS educators continued to promote it.

Len Horowitz tells us where AIDS comes from. He spoke in Penticton in the early 1990s.

Why am I not surprised that some would put their trust in a charlatan/snake oil salesman than take the time to actually study the scientific reports on this subject.

Leonard Horowitz DMD (1952–) is a former dentist, public speaker, sound healer, and prolific self-help author who styles himself as "The 'King David of Natural Healing' vs. The Goliath of 'Slash, Burn and Poison Medicine'".[2] He is an adherent and influential promoter of a large range of pseudoscientific conspiracy theories about health and medicine, and is respected among factions of the far right as an authority on these topics.[3]
