Solwezi Lady Burns Boyfriend Over HIV Infection Claim

Police in Solwezi have arrested a 24- year-old woman who burnt her 53-year-old boyfriend as punishment for infecting her with HIV.

The incident is said to have happened on Saturday night between 22:00 hours and 22:30 hours at House Number 12959, Mulomba Street in Kabitaka.

North Western Police commissioner Hudson Namachila identified the suspect as Evelyn Simwinga who allegedly poured kerosene on Samuel Mumba whom she had been dating for two years, before throwing a lit match stick on him.

He said an empty two-litre container, used match stick and a partially burnt door mat were found on the scene of the crime.

“The victim has sustained multiple superficial burns on both shoulders and back part of the neck and is currently admitted at Solwezi General Hospital,” Namachila disclosed.

According to Namachila,  Simwinga, who is in police custody, told officers that she burnt Mumba because he infected her with HIV.

A month ago, another Solwezi man died after his jilted lover poured petrol on him and set him ablaze.

A big man dating a small girl why???? Is it because of money which this gentleman was giving this small girl???? Next time, find someone of your age for dating!!! Thanks!

    I don’t understand why people are hitting at the age difference. The main issue here is an HIV infected person having sexual intercourse with one who is negative. Why wasn’t this man honest to the young lady? Even young people infect each other with HIV. People who know that they are HIV positive must not sleep with a negative person whether they are old or young.

    Age here doesn’t county, the case here is for all that two (2) years a normal man should have had enough love,hope and faith to let that fierce know that he had HIV during their first times but its the way round. U asked for it. Its unfortunate the young lady is stranded.

    It is not about age but being aware of one’s HIV status before having unprotected sex. Hiv self testing kits are now available on the market if you fear queus at a hospital. Umwana wamunobe mukashi so they say. Girls start sex ealier than men and in most cases are the ones that infect men. Most girls at 24yrs have already lost virginity and become compatible to a man of any age. So age is not an issue but kwowing ones hiv status before contact. DONT RUSH OR ELSE YOU CRUSH!

    What our frustrated lady should realise is that HIV virus is not a disease and having it is not a death sentence. She just needs to accept living with the virus and start treatment .it’s easier to live with this virus than suffering from some of these Diseases that are life threatening like TB,Malaria,, asthma and cancers
    Us who are positive and take arvs are even healthy I’ve seen around. Just be positive and Happy!!

  22. Nyolola
