This is a mail circulating in Cameroon on how people with HIV/AIDS intentionally infect others.
There have been many of such stories. Another one is a guy who used to live in the US, when he contracted HIV/AIDS he came back home to Cameroon and decided to date and copulate with as many girls as he could. When he died eventually he left a letter with a list of all the girls he had slept with. That's not all he also mentioned all the parties he organised and invited people he will cut himself and pour his blood in the wine.
Most of them who perform this hideous acts claim they did not buy the disease so they will not suffer alone.
Lets have your opinion of this kind of attitude? Please, read the story of Vandoline Mbeng

Dear reader,

Let me take your few minutes to safe a soul. I am call Vandoline Mbeng a student at Progressive Bamenda, a widow and a mother of one. I fell in love with this journalist by name GEORGE KELON.

We dated for a year and I decided to go for my HIV test. This is a tradition that I do after 6 months. Before I had contact with this man he showed me a fake HIV test results showing that he is not infected. Behold I was shocked when I got my results showing that I am positive. I called him to tell him the results. He told me I quote "WELCOME TO MY WORLD". All he told me was that I was the 90th woman that he has infected, and he got all the names in his book and he intends to do more. That was not all he also told me that he had passed it no to my little boy. I took this child to the hospital only to know that he was positive. I then recalled that each time he visited me he will cut his nails and cut this child's nails and blood was always oozing out.

My life is finished I don't know where to go to.
Dear readers, he might pass it on to your sister, brother, child, uncle, aunt, and even you. The questions I will ask goes thus: Is he a saddist? Am I wrong to let you know this? He is from Bafangi from Ndop Ngoh-ketunjiah Divison in the Northwest Province of Cameroon but lives in Carrifour Obili Yaounde and works in CRTV Yaounde.

Will he change his names to get women and infect them? What can the Traditional Rulers and Fons (Chief) of North West do to stop him from this practice? What can the Cameroon Government do to stop him from this practice?
Please do something if not the whole population will die before we know it. I am a victim and a Good Samaritan to tell you this.
Please be kind to your self and others. This will help you safe a soul may God bless you.
Vandoline Mbeng



Thi is a sad story to read. I always wonder why innocent people must die. Cant the authorities arrest the man and take legal action, What he doing Isn't it equavalent to murder after all he does it intentionally.

Good Question

Thanks mamaAfrica for your comment but unfortunately, i can't answer the question because i am not in Cameroon, i only received a forwarded email with the story. Perhaps if i was in Cameroon i would have investigated.
Other cases had come up, but it came to limelight only after the guy had died.
However, i intend to mail the reactions from World Pulse member to the original email address.
