When Willy Paul blogged about a particular male celebrity whom the "Njiwa" suspected of purposefully spreading HIV to impressionable young ladies, he sparked even more uproar on the internet yesterday.

The star posted the concerning details on his Instagram Stories, where the artist criticised him for his unacceptable behaviour.

"You're a famous person with HIV and AIDS. Girls between the ages of 19 and 25 have been the centre of your attention. Some innocent females still don't realise they've been tainted by you. The last person you infect is your sister. You should be in jail, boss. You know exactly who you are.

Before women were warned not to have an unquenchable thirst for greed, Nyinyi madem wa form shauri yenu na wa club na. Please get checked out. Those who are lucky are really blessed.

According to Section 14 of the HIV and AIDS Control Act of Kenya, while disclosure is voluntary, it is illegal for an HIV-positive person to intentionally and knowingly put someone else at risk of getting the virus. A person found guilty of this offence faces a maximum ten-year prison sentence, a maximum fine of Sh500,000, or both.

The Kenya High Court invalidated Section 24 of the HIV/AIDS Act in 2010 in a lawsuit filed by Aids Law Project, a nonprofit organisation that offers pro bono legal assistance in collaboration with the University of Nairobi.

The court found that the section was unconstitutional because it infringed on the rights of those living with HIV to privacy and secrecy.
