Tafadzwa Fichani, one of the Fichani twins who caused a stir back in 2006 for walking in the streets of Harare wearing goatskins, has now resurfaced in Gokwe Nembudziya.
Fichani claims to have slept with over 1 000 women, and without using protection even though he claims to be HIV positive.
In an interview with New Zimbabwe, Fichani said that he is now an artisanal miner in the Zenda remote mining area. He said:
Why should I use a condom now when I know that I am infected with HIV, to protect me from what?
I have slept with more than 1 000 women. What I can tell you is that women do not care about your appearance, all they want is money.
All my proceeds from the mining, I spent on spoiling women and that’s what women want. Money here it’s not a problem.
He claimed that women are only after money and as far as HIV and AIDS are concerned, women wouldn’t care less. Said Fichani:
Women want money, money and more money, it doesn’t matter how you look like, either dirty or smart. As for me, I do not hesitate to spoil them hence they fell for me.
Look around and see if there is any artisanal miner who is smart here, yet women are following all of us around, it’s because of money.
There is nothing to fear anymore. Its dog eats dog. That’s the life of artisanal miners and it’s an open secret that most of them are dying because of HIV and Aids.
I have since stopped using condoms and I am now targeting women who are also on ART (anti-retroviral therapy).
