JAILED: Sick lover who infected woman with HIV after meeting her online

A WARPED man has been jailed for infecting a woman he met online with HIV.

Simba Kuuya, 32, had unprotected sex with the woman despite knowing he was HIV positive.

The couple chatted online before exchanging phone numbers and then meeting up in person, a court heard.

Prosecutor Sue Ferrier said the woman only leaned Kuuya was infected with the deadly disease after their relationship ended.

Ferrier told Swansea Crown Court: “One of his former partners contacted her via Facebook and broke the news to her.

“The victim confronted Kuuya about his medical condition but he denied it.

“However she sought a blood test at Singleton Hospital which came back positive.

Kuuya, of Rochdale, Greater Manchester, was jailed for two years and four months after pleading guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm.

Huw Rees, defending, said: “He had been denial about his condition, something which sadly had consequences for others.”

Judge Christopher Vosper told him: “Her life has been completely changed by being infected – something that could easily have been avoided if you had been honest from the start.

“You chose to conceal something from her that you should have been open about. The consequences have been devastating.”
