Hanks’ wife, is believed to have left him after he infected her with HIV and was living a frivolous lifestyle.
Last year, Hanks Anuku, had revealed how he infected his wife with HIV and slept with 80 women.
He claimed it happened when he went to Zambia without his family in 2011 to act in HIV and AIDS shows.
According to him, he slept with variety of ladies and never cared about his family.
He admitted that he started drinking and became an irresponsible spouse, enabling his wife to carry the family burden.
“Life in Zambia was a dream come true because we were able to enjoy ourselves and go to new locations, yet I missed my family.
“I had different activities and slept with a variety of ladies throughout that time. I never cared after my family. After I went home, I started drinking and became an irresponsible spouse, enabling my wife to carry the full burden,” he continued.
Revealing how he found out that he was HIV positive, he said,
“While I was in Zambia, one of my girlfriends told me she was pregnant, so I got tested. During that time, she had gone for pregnancy tests and had been tested for HIV, and the results were shocking: she was HIV positive. She forced me to take the test, but the findings were unacceptable to me. After getting tested, I returned to Zimbabwe and kept quiet about the issue. I never told my wife about the problem. I apologize for infecting her, I later went through some counseling, which went well,”.
He further said that his notoriety caused him to do things he didn’t want to do.
“I had to sleep with over 80 ladies in Harare and Zambia during the height of my popularity. It felt fantastic to be on television in 2002. I used my celebrity to my advantage. To make matters worse, I lacked counseling and did not handle the situation effectively,” he said.

wigsbyrosey: See ehn honestly you don’t want to be in a situation where you have a drug addict as a loved one. It’s the most heartbreaking thing to ever experience. I wouldn’t conclude or use the world abandoned yet because a junkie can never be controlled. They get violent when you are trying to control them or take away their stash from them. You take them to rehab and they would escape. You cry and cry and cry still nothing happens cause the addict can’t understand empathy. All they care about is their stash. I really pray the universe and his Ala have mercy on him maka iha kariri family hanks honestly.
oyinofjedi: The women are taking care of themselves and the kids. If he was irresponsible then why would they be there for him now?
beygood1992: You called his first baby mama asper what? Is Hank her responsibility???.
officialtosynblack: When they say Drugs and all this stuffs they take is not good. Especially when there’s no proper health care after taking it, they’ll say you don’t know life or you no sabi body. They’ll even tell you that it helps cool off stress… Oh well, may God help him.
nkem.frances: Unfortunately I too don’t know how we can help him. Hank isn’t someone you can’t roll together to help as an outsider cos if anything happens to his life in the process of you helping,same “family” you claim abandoned him will take you to court. But how do you even expect a Zambian woman who is obviously still hurting from his treatments on her and her children to help? Or is it the first one who have moved on over 20yrs to come take him as her responsibility in this state? Sadly, you can’t eat your cake and still have it.
rahmatisa: Some girls even do drugs more than guys in recent times in the name of “I’m woke” I hope people taking drugs learn and withdraw early
