A message painted on the walls of the Enugu school reads “Cultists are HIV positives, run away from them”. Calling out the school for an alleged HIV stigmatization, OAP Azinge wrote;
Who thought this was a good idea? I can’t believe that the Enugu state Education board & P.P.S.M.B signed off on this! “Cultists are HIV positives, run away from them”
This is a message painted on the walls of Day Secondary school, independence layout Enugu. What the hell?? In 2018. We are still teaching children to run from & stigmatize people who are living with HIV ? How can u compare a person living with a disease to a cultist? Do u realize that there could be children in that school who are HIV positive ? Is HIV a crime? So many things are wrong with the country but the worst thing is that we have people running our educational system that think these sort of messages are okay. There is a better way to sensitize children about the dangers of cultism, without degrading people living with HIV.
