Former Ghana HIV/AIDS Ambassador, Joyce Dzidzor Mensah has challenged Ghanaian men based in Germany to sue her if they believe she had infected them with the HIV virus.
In a viral video sighted by www.murepubliconline.com, the mother of three said the threats by these men and Ghanaians in Germany generally, to have her prosecuted over an allegations of deliberately infecting them with the deadly virus.
Ms. Dzidzor indicated that her multiple sex partners may fault her for being loud on her claim that a large number of Ghanaian men in Germany are already infected with HIV.
She stressed that there are enough legal provisions that speaks to such allegations, that she is willing to subject herself to an interrogation.
“I have no explanation to offer anyone. I think the more I talk about the issue, the more people get excited to speak ill about me. I want to tell Ghanaians in Germany that I cannot be moved by your threats. There are laws that guides actions of HIV infected persons. So if you are a man who have had a sexual affair with me and think I have given you HIV, then go to the police and report me.
“Some of you may rush to the court. I have seen the worse of it. Some had taken me to court for having shared a photo on social media about the man responsible for my kids. I dare you to take this action this time on your claim that I have infected you.”
Ms. Dzidzor disclosed that most of her sexual partners have been abusive in so far as she is laid in cars and at offices.
“There are some of you who slept with me in your offices and cars. And you think I have infected you with HIV take me to court, lest I will personally take you to court or report you to the police for it because you don’t have the balls.”
According to her, the decision she took to declare her positive status and become an AIDS ambassador just to secure a better future some years ago is now doing more harm than good to her children.
“My children are going through a lot, they cannot go to school; I recall one day my son came home from school saying that I should stop the HIV project because they call him the ‘AIDS boy’ in school.
“Just recently, my daughter, who got admission into a school, was sent home because according to a mail sent to me by the authorities they read on the internet that I have HIV. My question is should a child be denied access to education because of HIV even if it is true?
“Yes, I made a mistake by taking on this task and I didn’t know it will hurt my children this way. My children do not have anything in their blood. I want my life and my children’s back and that is why I am going to all these lengths to clear the air.
“I have not stolen any money like has been rumored, my children have a life to live, they should not suffer for a decision I made,” she said in tears at a presser at the Press Centre in Accra on Wednesday, June 2.
In order to back her story, Joyce and her children took an HIV test in the presence of the media. When the results came, she tested positive while her children tested negative.
