A Fighting Spirit

A national hero turns public enemy when he confesses his secret. Gilbert Josamu, Zimbabwean middle-weight boxing champion, discovered he was HIV positive at the height of his boxing career. Living in a society where HIV/AIDS is taboo, Josamu decided to pursue his career without disclosing his status.

Just months before his death, he confessed to living with HIV for 14 years. Thus began his toughest battle yet- the battle for acceptance.
