A man who infected two women in the U.K with HIV after having unprotected sex with them despite knowing he was a carrier has been jailed for seven years.
Mweetwa Muleya, 28, from Swansea, knew from the age of 19 that he had HIV and had been warned it would be a crime to have sex without warning a partner he had tested positive.
Muleya went to Britain from Zambia as a teenager. Muleya was diagnosed with HIV at the age of 15 – but his mother did not tell him until he was almost 19.He was then given anti-retroviral medication to control the virus and advice on how to stop its spread. He was told it would be a crime to have unprotected sex with someone and not disclose his positive status.
Muleya fell into a lifestyle of drink and drugs and lapsed when it came to sexual health check ups.
Muleya said he had started drinking and taking drugs because he was in denial about his condition.When arrested Muleya said he had used protection with both women.
He leaded guilty to two counts of causing Grievous bodily harm in May this year and sentenced to seven years in prison, and handed an extra six months for unrelated drug offences.
