A woman who cannot be named for ethical reasons was arrested for allegedly deliberately infecting her husband with HIV.
The 25 year old woman allegedly tested positive for HIV in December last year but did not reveal her status to her husband. The woman was not asked to plead when she appeared before Western Commonage magistrate Mr Lungile Ncube last week, facing deliberate transmission of HIV charges. She was remanded in custody to April 24.
The court heard that the husband became suspicious after he noticed his wife was secretly taking pills. On February 20 he searched his wife’s handbag and discovered a book which indicated that his wife was tested for HIV at Nkulumane Clinic on December 19 and had tested positive. On February 22 the husband went for an HIV test and also tested positive.
