His daily life has been severely disrupted by the mysterious ailment, impairing his ability to engage with others. Those in close proximity have reported a pungent odour emanating from him, rendering it unbearable to be in his vicinity. Simani is convinced that his condition extends beyond mere physical affliction; he attributes it to spiritual causes.

In response to Simani’s plight, some individuals familiar with traditional practices have advised him to seek help from a traditional healer. Additionally, he is urged to locate the husband of the woman he was involved with and comply with whatever price is claimed to bring an end to his condition.
