She posted a video herself getting tested while she gave advice on how to go about your HIV test and how important it is to get tested. This is the third year running of this campaign. Last year the socialite titled November as the month were her #PokelloHIVTesting Campaign encourages young women to get tested, know their status and share their testimonies.

Pokello is a role model to so many young Zimbabweans and such a campaign could inspire the almost one million people who follow her across various social media platforms to also know their status. Zimbabwe is said to have one of the highest HIV prevalences in sub-Saharan Africa at 12.8%, with 1.4 million people living with HIV in 2019. Women are disproportionately affected, particularly adolescent girls and young women so it's extremely important for celebs like Pokello to engage in campaigns like this.

As of 2019, 90% of people living with HIV in the country were aware of their status, and 94% of those diagnosed were on treatment. In her Instagram post Pokello wrote this on the caption:

"We are a bit late this month but this is the 3rd anniversary of our #pokellohivtesting Campaign. I advocate for young people especially women to #KnowYourStatus

Regular Testing is vital. I will Be giving away 2 prizes every Friday to the first 2 people to inbox me their results at midnight as Friday begins. #pokellohivtesting

It’s important to note that, Modern HIV tests are able to detect most infections within a month of exposure.
-They can detect almost all infections within two months.
-Fourth-generation laboratory tests have shorter window periods than rapid tests and self-tests.
- So we do recommend you take a test again in 2-3 months time."
Pokello is only one of the high profile figures that were spotted at the late Genius Kadugure's funeral proceedings. She shared footage of Ginimbi's funeral proceedings and the celebration. Pokello Nare and Genius "Ginimbi" Kadungure shared a close friendship. They were always there for each other during the special moments and although they might've been rumours of them dating it was clear that they had more of the brother and sister relationship.
