Many questions were raised without answers. The former Nairobi woman representative rechael Shebesh has been missing from the eyes of the public for years. A lot has been said about her absence from the public limelight for years now. Her absence saw her hat replaced from her docket by former Nairobi speaker Beatrice Elachi.

Sad to imform you that, for the first time Shebesh has spoken about the condition she has been battling for decades now. As stated by Rachel shebesh, she has been fighting a condition known as Bipolar which has taken a toll on her for the past few months. Speaking to NTV, Rachael Shebesh revealed that she has been seeking medical attention to tame the condition.

Bipolar is a mental health condition that causes extreme mood swings that include emotional highs (mania or hypomania) and lows (depression). When you become depressed, you may feel sad or hopeless and lose interest or pleasure in most activities. She has urged Kenyans not to be quick to judge people who look depressed because it might be as a result of Bipolar.
