On the morning of World AIDS day Isidingo actress Lesego Motsepe, who played Letti Matabane, followed in the footsteps of Koyo Bala by going public with her HIV status.

She was interviewed on the morning show on KayaFM by Bob Mabena when she disclosed her HIV positive status.

She tweeted later on in the morning “Out and proud in more ways than one. God is love and I am a channel to help heal the wounds infected and affected. HIV is not who I am.”

Motsepe has been living with HIV for 13 years. She said “The virus lives in my blood. For 13 years I had known, and I wanted to use the opportunity God gave me to be able to be a mentor to those who will be going through the same struggles I have gone through.”
