    In a video shared on the Afrimax YouTube channel, Mangure narrated how her journey started after her marriage of six years crashed.

    The mother of two got to the US and settled in the city of Georgia, making ends meet via her new venture.

    Mangure’s business blossomed to the point that she could afford to rent an apartment.

    While admitting that life was not easy in America and that she dealt with depression owing to her failed marriage, the lady acknowledged making millions and owning two cars.

    However, the depression from her failed marriage overwhelmed her, forcing her to close shop and return toKenya.

    “When I relocated back here to Kenya, I carried all my stuff and even bought new stuff. I had put them in a container but I lost it all.

    “It never arrived in Kenya. I came back with only two suitcases that I carried at the airport. That was what I brought back to this country. I lost things that were a lot of money, running in millions. But I didn’t get anything.”

    She pleaded for help to treat her eye condition and buy her own car for the taxi business.

    “This is a sad story & a lesson to all of those in the Diaspora. We should invest back home for the future. Diaspora people shouldn’t trust most family & friends to help with anything involving their money. Good samaritans would come through for her on Lynn Ngugi Show.”
