MC Kats embarks on saving lives through HIV/AIDS campaign

To many, it came as a shock last year when celebrated emcee Edwin Katamba alias MC Kats came out and disclosed his HIV/AIDS status.

It had always been a rumor that the self-proclaimed ‘King of the mic’ was infected until he came clean. That road has not been an easy one especially for his family and friends but he stomached it in and made a brave move a few days ago when he decided to spearheaded a campaign to end stigma against HIV/AIDS.

 

Katamba’s new journey is an edutainment campaign to eradicate stigmatizing people living with HIV in the public and this revelation was made at Serena during a dialogue last Wednesday.

The NBS After 5 presenter will be encouraging the youths to use protection and constantly go for check-ups among other preventive measures.

He will be working closely with the Uganda Network on Law, Ethics and HIV/AIDS (UGANET), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), The AIDS Support Organization (TASO), The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria Open Society Initiative for Eastern Africa (OSIEA).
