HIV is a big problem that has terrorized the world for many years without scientists coming any close to a solution today than they did in the beginning. One thing they seem to have found answers to however is it’s origins. I don’t know how this new information will contribute to finding a cure but according to an article published by the BBC about the findings of an international team of scientists, the deadly disease originated right here in Africa from Kinshasa in 1920.

According to these scientists, ‘a feat of viral archaeology’ was studied to arrive at this conclusion and the results of course, we Africans do not want to hear. I smell a rat in the results of these findings especially since it is a time Ebola fingers are all pointed to Africa. These findings show that in the 1920’s , when Kinshasa was known as Leopoldville and was still part of Belgian Congo, there was considerable spikes in population and the boosting of the railways led to an influx of population ad many men seeking work. This continued till it cause an imbalance between the population of men and women resulting in men outnumbering women by two to one and causing a rise in sex trade. Also not very hygienic medical conditions ended up breeding and wildly spreading the virus. The railways also helped people coming and going pick up and send the virus to neighbouring areas and on and on.

It states that before the world’s attention was drawn to the deadly HIV in the 1980s, it had been thriving in Africa for much longer.

Several archived samples of HIV’s genetic code were studied for the purpose of this research and the findings point strongly to this conclusion.

Before its spread among humans, there was the original strain found in chimpanzees which was called Simian Immunodeficiency Virus. As to how the specie jump came about, scientists are looking at contact between humans and infected blood probably through the handling of bush meat and other ways.

Several people have also argued that before these 1920 records in Africa, there were 1820s records of the virus among the gay community in European countries. These have mainly been propounded by Africans so effectively leading to a back and forth argument between blacks and whites. However, this research has a lot of convincing data to back it.

Gossip Mama is one of the dumbest writers you will ever meet. What she lacks for in brains she makes for in.....As a female with some lil sense in her mind, she wants to give it out to the celebs lacking it. If you dont find her glued to the Tv, check her out by the computer bashing some celebrity with words.. I am not a journalist nor do I aspire to be one. I am a blogger who saw the potential of this site and joined the bloggers. And yes, I am biased. I only report on artists/celebrities that I like or find interesting.....

  1. I was looking for the name of the person who posted this article in this website. You are very foolish to write that “this research has a lot of convincing data to back it up”. Tell me what convinced your little brain that you can’t reason. What specific evidence was mention that really convinced you? Go and read a book by Richard Kingston called hot zone about HIV and Ebola. The white man will always find a way of means to originate every bad thing to Africa but every good thing to them. They did their research and they always write whatever they want about Africa and go scot free. Africa Governments will never question the authentic of this bogus research. I and will always blame Africa Governments for not able to protect its citizens. White man can come to Africa and roam about and do whatever they want. Nonsense!!!! me nko tea me se AIDS firi Africa. Mo abobodam.
