“The woman I RAPED infected me with HIV”… Man confesses in Gatundu.County News 00:58
Tuesday 3rd September 2013 - A village in Gatundu is still reeling in shock after a 20 year old man confessed to have been infected with HIV after raping a 35 year old woman.
The casual labourer identified as Maina, ambushed the woman at her home last year and raped her on her sick bed. The woman was so weak and could not scream or protest.
Maina raped her until morning and left her to die.
Speaking to the media, Maina said that he raped the woman despite her telling him that she was sick. He said that she knew the woman was just giving him excuses to make him go away and so he ignored her warnings.
It is now two months since the woman died and everyone in the village knows what killed her. Since then, Maina says that he has found no peace. He decided to go for an HIV test and his fears were confirmed after he tested positive.
He appealed to the locals to forgive him and support him. He claimed to have been tempted and he now suffers the consequences.
A lesson indeed!
