She recounted how she used to sneak out to shed tears whenever everyone was asleep after she was diagnosed with HV. According to her, although she was educating people on HIV when she was appointed the Ambassador, she went within after her session.
“…..And when I started educating people on HIV, I encouraged others but always cried in silence after my talk….I maintained s smiling face so that most people with HIV will derive some strength from me. I have been admitted to the psychiatric hospital in Hamburg on 4 occasions. 2015, 2016, 2017, 2019 all in a psychiatric hospital for major depression.
Due to my constant admission, my son Prince was taken away from me. But now I’m weak…Please be kind to my children when I’m no more. Do not treat them badly for my mistakes. God bless you all,” she wrote.
