@RediTlhabi the fact of the matter is people are no longer ignorant in regards to HIV. People are willing to take the risk for pleasure.— Velani Mabuza (@TheBanditss) October 2, 2015
People needs to be taught very well how to use condoms, sometimes it's the misconception that says its much funnier without it @RediTlhabi— Hlomani_Job (@Mbava_Job) October 2, 2015
@RediTlhabi. Honestly, its very sad when people who have sexually tried to take care of themselves are HIV infected. Its a pity & sorrowful.— Co-author - Ti tlhomana micila (@javulaniChauke) October 2, 2015
