Garepi Matambanadzo (35) is visually impaired and has two children with his wife Mercy, who is seven years younger than him.

People living with disabilities are usually left out of most health programmes, including HIV and Aids
“We are always fighting with my other half Mercy. I love her very much. I want six children, but she is content with the two that we have. The problem with me is that I am particular with my conjugal rights and I want them daily,” Matambanadzo says jokingly, picking up his metal walking stick.
Despite his disability, Matambanadzo has the same feelings that the able-bodied have. He married at the age of 25 and his eldest son Jonathan (10) is in Grade Five at Chikuku Primary School in Bikita. The second child, a girl, is six and in Grade Zero at the same school.
