wow, I was very impressed with the acting and the message came accross so clearly! Young people especially need to get tested before getting married but what am I even saying, these days people think just 'cos someone is cute they can't be a carrier!
It's a policy in my church in Ghana to get tested before marriage. They advice that during the pre-marital counselling process. Big ups to Kenya for being a pace setter! Great actors!... the kissing part... hmm not too sure if that fits very well in the context of my African upbringing :)

This was produced really well. I wish they had made it into a longer series or a movie but the message comes across without being too trite. And the dialects sound so cool!
