This Nurse Faked Man’s HIV Status to Deceive His Wife (Photo)

  • Killer nurse! This woman issued a negative result for an HIV-positive man
  • The man wanted to present the negative test to his wife
  • The nurse was charged for the crime, even though she says he pointed a gun at her
  • A nurse from Kawuku, Wakiso District, in Uganda, has been put in jail for preparing a false HIV report on one of his patients.

The health worker, called Samali Mukooda, performed an HIV test at Ebenezer Clinic Laboratory in Kampala on a man called Don Byakatonda.

Even though the test came back positive, Byakatonda asked her to change it to negative, so that he could show the document to his wife.

Mukooda claims she obeyed Byakatonda after he pulled out a gun on her and threatened to shoot if she did not obey his orders. Nevertheless, she has been found guilty of delivering the false HIV results, and Judge Mary Kaitesi sentenced her to 12 months in prison if she fails to pay a GHS84k fine.

I am an ardent reader and love to learn anything from archaeology to zoology, you can call me "Jack of all trades, master of all".

I love to write and that's exactly what I do at GhanaNation.com. I write on almost everything but my passion is on relationships. I believe it's the foundation of mankind, without it, we wouldn't be here.

Anybody I've come in contact with, admonishes me to be a relationship therapist, so who knows? Maybe that is what the future holds for me...
