The recent few days have seen MC Kats, real name Edwin Katamba, turn from just another mad man to a bold public figure living with purpose having revealed that he is living with HIV/AIDS.

A video making rounds on social media shows MC Kats, during an interview, reconfirming that he is indeed HIV/AIDS positive and he has been living that way for the last eight years.

The celebrated emcee goes ahead to reveal that he has come out as a leader to be a bold example to the public that one can live with HIV and prosper in life.

He is however disappointed with how the Ugandan government hasn’t done enough to sensitize people about this. He also calls upon different organizations to embark on efforts to provide help to other HIV/AIDS patients.

In the same video, Kats clearly states that no one in his family; not any of his baby mamas nor his kids, is infected with the virus. He also advises other patients to take their ARVs as advised by doctors.
