Kiss 100 Presenter Kamene Goro has been attacked online, after sharing her HIV test results on Instagram.
Ms Goro on Wednesday shared a picture of her result, which she captioned with a “#JustKnow”
Several of her followers did not take well the post and went ahead to question if she would post the result, if it was positive.
“Would you have shown it if the result was positive?” asked one Minkenya.
Others however, praised the radio host for the bold step she had taken, saying that it took courage to share the result.
“fidel_kiilu After how many years 😂 that fucking decision is scary.... congratulations though.”
“Go for confirmatory test don't be that sure,” said another.
After the backlash, the sassy presenter took to Instagram with a video saying that sharing her result is not the most important, but to get tested.
She called on people to stop being ignorant and instead know their HIV status.
“I woke up today and saw some of the comments on my previous post with my HIV test and I’m like I am living in one of the most highly educated, ignorant societies in the whole world. Guys we’re living in the era of HIV and aids and you’re there asking me if I would have posted it if it was positive. You want to go tell me take a confirmatory test. We are well informed by the way and guys that is not the heart of the matter. The heart of the matter is getting tested. Know where you stand, not a negative or a positive result. Get tested, It’s about responsibility, you cannot be shallow minded,” said Kamene.
