The woman allegedly tested negative for HIV in June last year when she was having protected se_x with her then boyfriend.

She then went for another test in October and again tested negative and the two who were now married started having unprotected se_x.

In March this year while cleaning their house, the woman came across a book which showed that her husband was HIV positive.

She said the woman went for another test in October and again she tested negative.

Mrs Ndlovu said after the second test, the complainant and the accused who were now married, started having unprotected se_x.

She said when the complainant later discovered a book which showed that her husband was HIV positive, she went for another test and she tested positive.

She then reported the case to the police leading to her husband’s arrest.
