The recent research done by the International Institute for HIV/AIDS Control and management reveals that most kenyan politicians, parastatal chiefs and business leaders who have tested positive for HIV/AIDS travels abroad to collect their ARVs despite the fact that the drugs are being provided free of charge in most Health facilities in the country.
Some of these politicians travels to Western countries at least once a month within less than ten picking their drugs within Africa; 2 MPs pick their drugs in Kigali, Rwanda, Four MPs and a Governor pick their DOSES from South Africa, 1 former MP and a Senator picks their rounds from Kampala Uganda.
About 23 legislators in the current National Assembly and senate collect their drugs from UK, With a certain deputy governor from Nyanza going all the way to Coventry City to take the drugs.
The research reveals that more leaders have Dubai in the united Arab emirates as their collection point .
The research linked this habit to fear of being identified by people and guarding of reputation and dignity , though some of these personalities like one contraversial ODM legislator have severally been heard disclosing his status and still travels to Dubai every month to pick ARV.
