A yet-to-be-identified woman has confessed to mixing her infected HIV blood in the zobo drink she sells in order to get other people infected.
The zobo seller stated this during a call-in radio programme on Wazobia FM, MarketRunz on Wednesday night.
The show anchor had asked listeners to call in and confess what they do in the marketplace that people are unaware of and what they aren’t proud of.
She said, “I went to the hospital six months ago and I was told I had HIV.
“I started mixing my blood with the zobo I make to sell and I sell to many people.
“I extract my blood with a syringe and mix it in the zobo. I was a nurse before but when I was confirmed HIV positive, I had to stop.
“I’m not happy with what I have done but I am happy that I will not die alone.
“I have been doing it for six months now and I pray God will forgive me.”
According to PUNCH, findings revealed that HIV cannot be transmitted by water or food.
“HIV can not be transmitted through food or liquid. Indeed, it can’t survive for a minute outside the human body,” a website quoted World Health Organisation.
