    Woman Makes Shocking Confesses Of How She Infected Men With HIV

     

    Francis, a prostitute who spent most of years on a revenge

    mission, infecting several men with HIV after she

    discovered she was also infected with HIV/AIDS by a man in

    2006 confesses at TB Joshua's SCOAN.

     

    Francis who slept with up to six men daily in the major

    cities of Tanzania and Namibia said:

    "I was very angry with every kind of man, anyone that called

    himself a man? It's only that I could not manage to hunt

    and kill them but my desire was to use any weapon to kill

    men - because one of them killed me. Inside me, I said to

    myself, 'I will never tell them my status. Whoever comes to

    me, I will finish him. The way they infected me, I must infect

    them also.' I don't know how many men I infected but they

    are thousands."

    Francis who grew up in Tanzania started living a rebellious

    life at the age of 14 shares her story:

    "When we reached the city, I found a lot of girls who were

    older than me who were in this business of prostitution,"

    Francis explained. "They introduced me how to behave in

    order to seduce men and get clients." Two years down the

    line aged 16, the young girl was already pregnant for an

    unknown father. Attempts to abort the child through native

    concoctions all failed and she resolved to return home to

    have her child.

    However, the desire to prostitute continued even after giving

    birth. "I was even prostituting when I was breastfeeding and

    eventually, my mum took the child away from me." Francis

    immediately returned to the city, linking back up with her

    group. Four years later, Francis' mum sent a message to her

    that a family relative was willing to take her to Namibia to

    save the family from shame and get her out of the 'mess'.

    She eventually agreed.

    "When I reached Namibia, I felt I was imprisoned. I couldn't

    go to clubs, smoke, drink or meet men - which is what I

    wanted to do." Fighting her aunt daily, she eventually threw

    Francis out of her home. "It was celebration for me that I

    can go back to the same lifestyle. I already made a group of

    friends that were prostituting? They introduced me to the

    area where I could hunt for men and sleep with them."

    Living a lavish and promiscuous life on the streets of

    Windhoek, Namibia, Francis had lost all touch with her

    family. 'Business' was booming due to the influx of foreign

    workers in the city who would regularly patronise her and

    also introduced her to hard drugs. However, the

    consequences of her actions were about to catch up on her.

    "In 2006, I discovered that I was pregnant again. I didn't

    know the father because I was sleeping with five or six men

    a day - I just wanted money to enjoy," she recounted.

    Encouraged by a fellow prostitute not to abort, Francis

    visited a hospital when the pregnancy reached six months

    where they conducted several tests. "That is when I

    discovered I was HIV/AIDs positive." Shock. Bitterness.

    Rage. Emotions ran wild within the heart of the young sex-

    worker. "There was this voice that said - 'Now, it's better

    you die!' "

    Knowing that death was close, the embittered prostitute

    resolved to take as many men as possible along with her. "I

    cannot count how many men I have infected. If any man told

    me we should use a condom, I would tell him, 'Look at how

    I look? I cannot have such a disease.' So, the man would

    end up trusting me. They are thousands."

    Francis expanded her 'business' horizons via the internet,

    particularly using the dating social network 'Eskimi'. It was

    in 2013 that she encountered a Nigerian man while looking

    for a more 'serious' relationship. "The man became

    attracted to me and asked for my contact details. He told

    me he wanted to come to Namibia and visit me." When the

    Nigerian arrived, the couple forged a relationship,

    culminating in Francis falling pregnant. She did not divulge

    her health status.

    After giving birth, Francis had a bout of guilt and visited a

    pastor at Christ Embassy Church to confess her sins. "After

    confessing to the pastor, who is also a Nigerian, he met the

    father of my child and asked if he really knew me. He told

    him, 'This girl confessed to me that she is HIV/AIDS

    Positive.' " Francis' Nigerian lover fainted upon hearing the

    news and was rushed to hospital.

    After recovering, he 'ran away' from her, moving to Angola.

    However, their young baby was nearing the age of nine

    months. Francis was desperate. Her finances were stagnant

    and she was tired of prostitution. After pleading with the

    Nigerian, a settlement was eventually reached. "He said the

    only thing he would do for me was to give me money to go

    to Nigeria and drop the child with his parents."

    Some weeks earlier, a friend had introduced Francis to a

    Christian television station which was gaining increasing

    popularity in Namibia. It was Emmanuel TV, the station of

    Nigerian Pastor T.B. Joshua. Seizing the opportunity to

    visit Nigeria, Francis decided to visit the famous church in

    Lagos after she had dropped off her son. "When I arrived in

    Lagos, they put me in a car and took me straight to a state

    called Enugu. I only stayed one week there. Then I had to

    search for The Synagogue."

    On Sunday 27 April 2014, Miss Francis sat gingerly in the

    huge auditorium of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations

    (SCOAN) in Lagos. It was the time of prayer from the 'wise

    men' and she was nervous. "Before the wise man came

    close, I felt like electricity dividing my body and I started

    shivering. I don't know what happened when he prayed for

    me." Francis received 'deliverance' from the 'demon' that

    pushed her to a life of prostitution.

    The following week, Sunday 4 th May 2014, Francis publicly

    gave her confession in the crowded church. "I am here to

    kneel down and ask the whole world, every man I

    encountered, to forgive me," she tearfully said, explaining

    that after her 'deliverance' she began regretting her actions

    for the first time. She went further to send a poignant

    message to her fellow sex-workers. "There is no benefit in

    prostitution. The end of prostitution is bitterness and

    sorrow. I advise youth - if you are in the same situation I

    was in, let me be an example in your eyes. Drop that

    lifestyle immediately and seek the face of God."

    Francis stayed another week in the Nigerian church after

    which T.B. Joshua gave her the sum of $1,500 to restart her

    life in Namibia. "I will never return to prostitution. I am so

    grateful to God," she concluded.
