Here is the article
(Nairobi) Hundreds of people marched through the capital of Kenya on Thursday to protest the killing of a boy who was HIV-positive.
Isaiah Gakuyo's mother and grandmother had already died of AIDS and the boy was being cared for by his uncle.
Police say the uncle became angry because the youth would not use separate eating utensils and killed him with a pitch-fork.
The uncle had been investigated in the past for abusing the boy.
The child was removed from his care and for a time was looked after by a social service agency. But recently the uncle was allowed to resume cared.
Following the murder the uncle disappeared and AIDS activists who organized Thursday's protest called on police to find the man and bring him to justice.
They said that the killing shows the fear and ignorance of HIV/AIDS in Kenya.
Kenya is one of the recipients of US AIDS funds but the money is tied to the promotion of abstinence, a condition of receiving the money.
I believe this shows the fear many people have of HIV/AIDS, especially in Kenya. Mentioned later in the article was that Kenya receives US AIDS funds only to be used for abstience promotion, having sex education anywhere that isn't comprehensive is irresponsible because abstaining sex from is not the only option Kenyians have, or anyone has, but especially Kenya.
