Here’s how the fans reacted to these stories:

My heart went out to Nancy's mother who does not have a gravesite for her daughter. How fresh tears fill her eyes every time she remembers her daughter, the house she was constructing and how cows "walk over" her daughter. Sad stories.

Let's justice prevail to wanyotta's family .....they really need that closure ??

I'm glad some got assistance, they're still pushing through.

I shed tears to all stories, that lady who was robbed of her twin sister

Gichuku Njiruh

Touching. I even shed tears. May God see those families through. The lady who lost her husband and has 2 autism kids is a strong lady.

The next episode featured the story of Mary Akatsa, the controversial Kenyan prophetess who was thought to have healing powers. She made headlines in 1988 when it was widely reported that she had brought Jesus to her church. Her childhood, rise to prominence and close interactions with former powerful politicians were all highlighted in the episode.
