Stories have been going around that Nigerian actor Hanks Anuku infected his wife with HIV.
According to reports by Naij, the rumours are completely false and are in bad taste.
Hank who is now a refined born again Christian, was said to have shared his experience of how he enjoyed life back in Zambia and his quote was taken out of context.
What he 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”.
The experience of 48year old Hanks was misconstrued, painting him in a bad light when he actually explained that he regretted not telling his wife about his HIV status and the counselling he received after the incident.
