With persistent career threatening injuries and other hurdles threatening her otherwise bright future, it now appears that Kenyan track star Mercy Cherono has another issue knocking at her door.

Together with her newly married husband, the world junior medallist visited Nigerian televangelist TB Joshua’s church (the televangelist who is popular for exorcising evil spirits) and confessed that all was not well, according to news already on the digital space.

The prophet is quoted as having told the two that even though their marriage is new, its success was threatened by anger, fighting and a premarital controversy. The 25-year-old celebrated athlete has a YouTube clip of the prophet praying for her.
