Kenyan activists take to streets

Kenyan Aids activists took to the streets of Nairobi to protest against the killing of a 15-year-old boy who they say was hacked with a garden fork by his uncle because he was HIV-positive. Police are still looking for Isaiah Gakuyo’s guardian, a week after the boy was killed in Nyeri. The protestors said the killing highlighted the stigma faced by those living with Aids in Kenya. The Star quotes Asunta Wagura, executive director of the Kenya Network of Women with Aids, who says Gakuyo was often beaten and denied food at home.
