Even the muppets get teh AIDZ..
« on: October 06, 2010, 12:57:53 PM »
In Nigeria no less..

HIV-positive muppet to star in Nigeria's 'Sesame Street'

....

The show stars Kami, a girl Muppet who is HIV-positive, has golden hair and a zest for adventure; and Kobi, an energetic, furry, blue Muppet whose troublesome escapades help others learn from his mistakes.

In a country with a population of over 150 million -- where nearly half are under the age of 14 -- the show will address some of the biggest challenges faced by young people in the region: AIDS, malaria, gender inequality, religious differences -- as well as many positive aspects of Nigerian life. In the case of Zobi, this is characterized by an obsessive love of yams -- a staple food in the Nigerian diet.

....

There are also an estimated 278,000 HIV-positive children in Nigeria, according to the National Agency for Control of AIDS.

Yeah, Kami (short for Kamogelo --acceptance in Setswana) has been poz since at least 2002.  Still doesn't qualify to be an LTS.  I'm surprised that she had not been mentioned before round here.

Indeed.. she even got to meet Bill Clinton..

The, er, more interesting twist of landing Kami on Nigerian TV is the fact that the country is currently being ruled by a group of evangelists who are happy to fight the proxy culture war for the fundamentalist crazies in America while rejecting any "Western influences".. far more, er, interesting to observe what Kami would attempt to teach than back in the early 2000s when South Africa was ruled by a group of denialists.
