Same name gives folk wrong impression

Brian Mabasa's letter, "Unequal justice for nurse and young man" on April 3, refers.

Mabasa compared the sentences of the Mpumalanga nurse who infected her stepson with HIV-Aids blood and the young man who held a home affairs official hostage.

I feel terrible because half of Gauteng thought I was the culprit because we have the same name. I am an Aids activist living with the virus for the past 16 years and an auxiliary nurse. People thought I did the terrible thing and pointed fingers at me. But I live in Gauteng. She should have received a longer sentence.
