Popular HIV/AIDs activist Phenny Awiti has landed a highly desirable job at a state corporation, the National Aids Control Council.

Phenny Awiti hails from Karachuonyo Kobuya and has earned fame following her confidence to come out publicly and disclose her HIV status.

The mother of two learnt that she was living with the virus after joining Asumbi Girls High School way back in 2007.

According to Phenny, she was born with the virus and that has not in any way deterred her spirit as a woman to go against any societal depression to fight for opportunities.

She has therefore been championing for a stigma free society through her YouTube Channel and Facebook account that enjoys a mammoth following.

Well, Phenny took to her online platform to announce her new role at NACC.

“What a pleasure and honour to be appointed by National AIDS Control Council(NACC), as a Member to take part in one of it’s Working group.

The group ensures as NACC works on HIV and AIDS, people living with HIV are meaningfully engaged. I am glad to be a part of NACC and Ministry of Health!” she wrote
