Ok so I get the bit about trying to protect oneself from the virus but I do think this lady went a little too far, don’t you?

  • Annonciata  Kampororo hatched the murder plot with her son and her sister

A Rwandan woman hacked her husband to death  with a machete for fear that he would infect her with HIV, local media  reports.

Annonciata Kampororo, said to be middle aged,  hatched a plot with her son and sister to kill her husband Anaclet Majyambere,  48, after he inherited his brother’s HIV-positive wife.

It is a tradition in some rural communities  in Rwanda for a man to ‘inherit’ the widow of a family member in order to  provide for them.

It is believed the brother of Mr Majyambere,  a resident in Gisagara in southern Rwanda, died of AIDS.

His wife, a local liquor seller, feared that  the widow would also be infected and refused to sleep with Mr Majyambere until  he took an HIV test.

 When he refused to do so, she ‘withheld his  conjugal rights’ and began planning the murder, Sowetanlive reported.

One night, Kampororo, her son and her sister  attacked Mr Majyambere with machetes and pestles and killed him.

It is estimated that just over 3 per cent of  the Rwandan population – between 180,000 and 250,000 people – live with  HIV.

More than half are women and children,  according to UNICEF statistics, and in 2011 a reported 170,000 children were  orphans as a result of AIDS.
