Programmes manager for Cedep Rodney Chalera said recently that among the 2364 population of the gay community, the prevalence rate stands at 24.9 per cent.

He said the study was done in September 2014.

Cedep officer  said other areas where the study was conducted include Mangochi, Mzuzu, Chikhwawa and Lilongwe with funding from the UN.

He said those that are in HIV programmes should respond positively.

REALITY FINALLY KICKING IN! Yes we do have a GAY-COMMUNITY in Malawi – whether we like it or not.

Let’s move on. THE THREAT TO OUR FUTURE IS STATE-INSPIRED KLEPTOMANIA not our community of gays! If WE FIGHT CORRUPTION AND WIN we will have the MORAL-AUTHORITY to clean-up the sectors of our Society we are not comfortable with!

AFRICANS ARE UNEDUCATED ABOUT EVERYFHING INCLUDING DISEASES

DISEASES DONT COME FROM THE USA.. AMERICANS DONT EAT RATS, BATS, CATERPILLARS, MONKEYS(which carries even HIV), WILD BIRDS, ALL SORTS OF WILD BUSH MEATS AND AMERICANS HAVE PLENTY CONDOMS AND EVEN SOAP TO WASH UP BEFORE AND AFTER SEX..
HYGIENE IN EVERY FORM DOES NOT EXIST IN MALAWI…. SO GET EDUCATED ABOUT THE FACTS!…

This Rodney guy needs to be arrested. he’s in a habit of sleeping with young teenage boys around lilongwe @ his residence in Area 25… Man of no shame. At times, he likes patronising night clubs in search of broke and desperate young men in the club’s. He takes them to him home and fuck them in exchange for Some cheap Carlsberg greens…. Chosecho ndi akulu ampingo ku Assemblies. … Pathetic paedophile

Jesus is the friend of sinners. Those hypocrites who wish others evil and death are not any closer to the Jesus I know and profess. They shud actually be the first to receive Jesus. Do not confuse old testament Jewish laws with the love that Jesus brought amongst us which is rejected by hypocrites
