Introduction to Passage
The passage I’m quoting is the author recounting on an interview with one of the wives in a south African royal family, discussing the impact of family tradition in tribal setting leading to the spread of HIV/AIDS.
“Participants’ concern has been observed by Izama (2003) who states that ‘if one partner becomes infected with HIV, the man would distribute the infection to all wives in the polygamous marriage.'(Matshidze,Mashamba 5).”
