The first day of December is always set aside for the World AIDS Day globally. In Kenya, many people suffer from this deadly virus but only a few make their HIV positive status known to the public due to stigmatization
A good example is Peter Ojung'a who has been living with HIV for over two decades. While explaining how he got it, Peter did not shy from explaining how he got infected by an ex lover.
Since they were living together, Peter asked his ex lover whether they could proceed to a nearby hospital so that they could know their HIV status. However, the lady was reluctant before she later showed Peter a HIV status Certificate which showed that she was negative. Peter thus believed her
However, everything went south after the two were blessed with a baby. It is here where the doctor revealed to Peter the HIV status of his baby mama. Before he could digest the shocker, Peter was tested by the same doctor and it emerged that he was positive too
Noting that Peter had realised her scam, her ex lover ran away with the baby never to be seen again. Though this news was hard to swallow, Peter has managed to overcome it and is under ARVs medication.
Peter is also an author whereby he writes books inspiring people with HIV that they should go for medication and that it is not a death sentence
