The actress and part-time singer stormed Ghana from Germany to undergo the test to clear the doubts of some people who insist she’s still a bearer of the incurable disease.

The mother of three said the decision she took to declare her positive status and become an AIDS ambassador just to secure a better future some years ago is now doing more harm than good to her children.

“My children are going through a lot, they cannot go to school; I recall one day my son came home from school saying that I should stop the HIV project because they call him the ‘AIDS boy’ in school.

“Just recently, my daughter, who got admission into a school, was sent home because according to a mail sent to me by the authorities they read on the internet that I have HIV. My question is should a child be denied access to education because of HIV even if it is true?

“Yes, I made a mistake by taking on this task and I didn’t know it will hurt my children this way. My children do not have anything in their blood. I want my life and my children’s back and that is why I am going to all these lengths to clear the air.

“I have not stolen any money like has been rumored, my children have a life to live, they should not suffer for a decision I made,” she said in tears at a presser at the Press Centre in Accra shortly after the test was conducted.
