WELCOME TO MY WORLD OF HIV/AIDS

Tags:

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

Hi Fatwaz,
Thanks for your contribution, i could tell from your writing you are so upset to read such inhuman acts. All we hope and pray is that authorities should be conscientious about such acts.
My warm regards

Sorry for everything

Dear Enie,

Thank you, I am sorry to what happened to you and the other women. The world is full of that type of a man.
There are many organizations around the world today working very hard with cases like yours to educate women to know their rights, although the rights are yours. But, they are not yours until they are given to you. These organizations are not only educating women and girls to know there rights. They are also fighting poverty in the communities. Make enquiries to know if you have such organizations near you.

Yours Sincerely

Mwajuma

Hi Mwajuma,
Thanks for repling my post. Actually it seem you did not quite get the story. The title 'Welcome to my World of AIDS' was derived from the man who is exihibiting the hideous act of infecting women.
I am not one of his victim and i am not HIV positve as i wrote it is a situation happening in Cameroon. I am not even in Cameroon at the moment.
I posted the article so that we could see what's happening to women and also it is a call for women to be cautious for such could happen in any other country too.
Please do accept my sincere regards and thanks also for the information.
