Petrus Mbulaheni Muthelo

Petrus is 62 years old and has been leaving with HIV for 19 years. He is a proud single father of a 14 year old girl, after losing his wife passed in 2003. In 2007 Petrus joined a support group looking for information about HIV/AIDS and support to raise his daughter. He is open about his status and counsels people in the community, teaching them about HIV. His message is" I know that am HIV+ and am living positively with it,. HIV does not control me, I control HIV because I take my ARV's always." He wants to encourage men to get tested because men are dying unnecessary. If men are dying, he says, where will the seed come from to create new life? Catch him on PhalaPhala Fm to learn more about HIV/AIDS and the important of taking ARV's.
