Nkosinathi Mgwenya

Nkosinathi Mgwenya (34) was a student at the University of North West in Mafikeng doing his final year in Social Work when his girlfriend insisted that he should get tested. He didn't take her seriously as many of his friends advised him not do so as it wasn't manly. But his girlfriend's persistence bothered him because she wouldn't budge, insisting that he visits a clinic and test for HIV. When he finally did, he found out that he was HIV positive. He will be on Ligwalagwala FM to talk to about living with HIV
