For the better part of Wednesday afternoon, social media users across the country were sent into a state of panic following the emergence of unbelievably scary confessions that revealed how easily and quickly the dreaded HIV virus has been spreading in the city.
On Bett Wahome’s Instagram story, all the shocking experiences he had received through his DM were shared for the thousands who had flocked his account to read.
From how sex for grades and unplanned foursomes had led to substantial permanent consequences to how lust induced revenge missions were brought to a halt at the many Voluntary Counseling and Testing (VCT) centers in Nairobi.
The stories not only showed how careless the younger Kenyan generation has become but also how casual sex is slowly turning from a sign of “emotional maturity” to one of the most dangerous encounters in the city and the country in general.
According to the Kenya HIV Estimates Report 2018, Nairobi had the highest number of new infections among young people between 15 and 24 years at 2,587 followed by Homa Bay at 1,852, Siaya at 1,641, Kisumu at 1,630 and Migori at 1,143.
There are 184,719 HIV positive youth (15-24 years) and this age group accounts for 17,667 of the total new infections, and 2,830 HIV-related deaths.
Currently, nearly one million Kenyans (76 percent coverage) are on antiretroviral therapy, including 53,067 mothers to prevent mother-to-child transmission.
Here is a thread of the screenshots.
