Tendai Mazambani had sex with eight women without revealing he was HIV positive.
The 34-year-old London man was sentenced to seven years in prison yesterday by Superior Court Justice Johanne Morissette for eight counts of aggravated sexual assault.
"The most important mitigating factor is that miraculously, none of your victims have tested positive," Morissette said.
Born in Zimbabwe, Mazambani came to Toronto in 2001 as a political refugee with his wife. After having difficulty starting a family, Mazambani took his spouse to a Toronto hospital where they discovered she was HIV positive.
Mazambani also tested positive and was advised by a doctor about his responsibilities as a person with HIV.
Why weren't these people tested before they were allowed into the country? Why wasn't it 'til after they landed in Canada that they discovered they were HIV positive? Africa is a hotbed for the AIDS virus, an epidemic that can easily be explained if Tendai Mazambani and Clato Mabior's behaviour is any indication of Africa's culture or promiscuity. Why is Canada so nonchalant with testing African immigrants for HIV and AIDS? Are we so keen to import Africa's AIDS epidemic here?
Something tells me gay activism is partially to blame for Canada's lackadaisical approach to screening out HIV positive immigrants. It may also be because these people are "refugees", a label that should be taken with a grain of salt nowadays. It seems the safety of these individuals is more important than the health risks they pose for the Canadian public at large and the potential drain on health care resources they may inflict, further bankrupting Canada's much cherished health care system one HIV positive immigrant at a time.
I don't see the logic in granting asylum to individuals harbouring infectious and incurable diseases like HIV or Tuberculosis. I don't see the logic in letting them into the country at all. They should be denied entry period! For the sake of one the health of many more are placed at a potential risk and where is the common sense or the compassion in that?
Putting the health of Canadians at risk: rise in HIV cases in Canada due largely to immigration.
