When she visited her mother after giving birth, her mother revealed that she has been battling with HIV/AIDS and depression has been making her to give up since the death of her son. The mother was struggling too much and after struggling with her illness, she later died.


After her mother's burial, she later found out that her boyfriend was cheating on her with her best female friend. Diana was being hurt after the boyfriend used to come home with his new girlfriend insisting that he is just a friend but later admitted that they have been having affairs together. The boyfriend never appreciated her and one day he took Diana to a night club and made her drunk then afterwards he beat her up and forced himself on her body without her consent. Diana accused her boyfriend of 'rape' but the guy denied saying that she is his wife and he can do anything he wants with her anytime.

Diana at this moment felt very depressed with her boyfriend and she never have anywhere to go since she did not have any other family.

While she was burning, her boyfriend never helped at the moment but just gave her a heavy blow that sent her sprawling on the floor. After some few minutes, the boyfriend later poured water on her to put off the fire. The neighbors came and took her to hospital where she was admitted at Thika Level 5 hospital where the doctors were not attending to her since they had accused her that she wanted to commit suicide.
