After this, Marie's marriage quickly went down the drain. She remembers this vividly, "My husband eventually chased me away, ordering me to leave with our child. I luckily managed to move into a friend's place around Nairobi."
She sought consultation from family and friends - her mother, aunts as well as other friends. Finally, she decided to visit a witchdoctor. The specialist, just like a medical doctor would, carried out a thorough consultation. Marie carefully narrated all that had happened to him. He listened carefully, then asked for some details from her, which she gave him. "He provided some herbs that she was instructed to use when she showered, and proceeded to other serious rituals which they carried out."
"These revealed to me all what my friend had done to my marriage. Less than 24 hours later, my husband started calling me, asking me where I was so that he could come see me. I was very grateful to the herbalist. He gave me good advice out of his experience of dealing with people's problems."
