A 44-year-old man who carried the deadly HIV virus has been found guilty at Wolverhampton Crown Court of deliberately infecting two women with the disease and has been sentenced to four-years behind bars.
Zimbabwean monster, Nkosinati Mabanda, was reported to the police by one of his victims in the West Midlands after she made the awful discovery that he was HIV positive after finding a secret text on his phone from his fiancee.
After contacting her, the two women got talking and the fiancee advised her to get a HIV test.
The HIV test came back positive and Mabanda was immediately arrested in 2009.
He pleaded guilty to causing Grevious Bodily Harm and confessed that he was fully aware of carrying the deadly virus in a police interview and was subsequently placed on police bail awaiting the court case.
But the case against Mabanda took an unexpected turn when another woman spotted his photograph in the newspaper and informed the police that he had began an unprotected sexual relationship with her while he was on bail.
Luckily for her the HIV test cam back negative.
It is believed that Mabanda had sexual relationships with as many as seven more women but they have all been impossible to trace:
“The particularly disturbing element of this case is Mabanda’s blatant disregard towards his victim and his various other partners.
“Mabanda told officers that he had sex with nine women in the UK and that seven of them had not known he was HIV positive.
“He seems to have shown no regard for the health of others or the potential life sentence he may have passed on to anyone who had sex with him.
“I am pleased that Mabanda has received a significant custodial sentence”, said Police Superintendent Jan Thomas-West.
