The lady who was married to controversial Pastor, Victor Kanyari explained her struggles on her YouTube channel. She said;

‘Someone might ask if I have ever been depressed and I would say, yes I have. I knew I was depressed after I attended a wedding only to realize that I had worn slippers. I had not combed my hair nor had I applied lotion on myself.
in my mind, I knew that before I left home I had planned on attending a wedding but I did not plan on attending while looking unkempt.’
