-- An AIDS patient dying on a hospital bed decides to break his silence and tell his story. His audience - Health workers and other patients - cannot help but wonder at his mischievous teenage adventures; his experiences in the Rhodesian war of liberation to his casual escapades with prostitutes in independent Zimbabwe. He blames himself squarely for his plight and attributes his fate to the wrong choices he made in life...... The stories give rise to heated discussions on prostitution, symptoms, testing, prevention and treatment options for STIs especially HIV/AIDS. The tension and suspense mount as some members of his audience realize they also took part directly or indirectly in those adventures. The story ends after the inevitable deaths of most of the patients but closes on a happier note as two of the characters who were not promiscuous actually survive and marry..... Kandawasvika provides a rare glimpse into the underworld of prostitution with such candor, humor and suspense seldom seen in matters so intimate. The story is told in a refreshingly entertaining and informative tone, capturing the essential information on HIV/AIDS, exposing some myths and falsehoods, hoping with the hopeless and skillfully obscuring the line between fact and fiction. Due to the story's moral theme, it can be a very useful source of advice and guidance to teenagers and young adults without being dogmatic in the process.
