SALC is supporting private lawyer, Mr Tawanda Chakabva, in the criminal defence of a woman living with HIV who was  charged with Deliberate transmission of HIV in terms of section 79 of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act of Zimbabwe for allegedly breastfeeding a baby.

The case was dismissed before plea when the state unprocedurally sought to amend the charge by substituting it with a different charge. The state has not indicated whether it intends to re-institute the prosecution.
