Brothers for Life Simiso Msomi

Simiso is an electrician living with his parents in Chesterville, Durban. He was 21 when he as diagnosed with HIV. He disclosed to a friend who introduced him to Oziel Mdlethshe, who counseled and supported him. Having lost his beloved older brother to HIV, he was wary of disclosing to his family, eventually disclosing to ask for their blessing to participate in this campaign. He sees this as an opportunity to reach out to young men struggling with HIV. @simisomsomi
