Reports have it that popular actor, Hanks Anuku intentionally infected his wife with HIV.
According to Naij, the rumors are completely false and misconstrued. Hanks said his quote was taken out of context. What he actually said was:
“I got tested while I was in Zambia after one of my girlfriends advised me about her pregnancy. She had gone for pregnancy tests and during that time she was tested for HIV and the results was shocking, she was positive. She forced me to get tested but I could not come to terms with the results. After I got tested I came back to Zimbabwe and I kept quiet about the issue. I never told my wife about the issue. I infected her but I regret. I later on received some counseling and it went well,”
“During my peak of popularity I had sex with approximately 80 women, within Harare and Zambia. In 2002 it was so amazing to be on TV. I abused the fame. To make matters worse I lacked counseling and I failed to handle it properly, leaving me in this mud. I am now a born again Christian with UFIC under the guidance of Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa”.
Hanks experience was misconstrued and the media painted him in a bad light when he actually explained that he regretted not telling his wife about HIV status and the counseling he received after the bad incident.
