Help is on the way for ailing former boxing queen Conjestina Achieng after she was airlifted from Siaya to Nairobi by Governor Mike Sonko for treatment and rehabilitation.

According to a statement on his page, Governor Sonko stated that he was touched by the plight of the star and disclosed that he will personally ensure that ‘Conje’ is fully treated.

“I was touched by Congestina’s plight after a video of her current state went viral on the social media.

“My team led by the Nairobi City County Government sports board is leading the mission to airlift the veteran boxer who brought pride to the nation by winning several international boxing titles.

“I’ll personally ensure Congestina is fully treated and rehabilitated, before she’s assisted to get a stable job to enable her become financially independent,” wrote Sonko.

This follows a similar drive by Nacada Director and comedian Vincent Mwasia Mutua alias Chipukeezy who had sought the former world boxing super middleweight champion after a video of her sad state emerged online.

“I’ve talked to the family and we have agreed I go pick her tomorrow in Kisumu and take her to the Best Rehab/mental in Kenya… As NACADA we will take care of her,” read his post.

An action, that was also a culmination of efforts by other celebrities including gospel singer Daddy Owen who had drawn attention to the plight of the former boxing legend who put Kenyan boxing on the map on her heydays before mental issues took a toll on her.

“Good news! We finally got contacts and as we speak @chipukeezy will be going to pick CONJE in Yala or he may send someone, on arrival in Nairobi she will be taken to a rehab courtesy of Gava. I will follow up personally and update u guys… Plus thank you for the support guys… If u have other ideas as a long term solution for CONJE kindly share kwa comments or inbox me… Together we can do this…!” Wrote Owen.

Once the pride of Kenya and famed for battling it out pound for pound with Laila Amaria Ali – Mohammed Ali’s daughter –  ‘Conje’ was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder/paranoid schizophrenia.

She was admitted at Mathari Hospital in 2012.

Ezekiel Mutua opens up on medical condition that has given him sleepless nights

Published

on

Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua on Monday opened up about a heart condition that has been giving him sleepless nights.

Through a post on Facebook, Mutua stated that last week he checked into hospital for a checkup but doctors told him that he had a serious condition and needed to see a cardiologist.

“My BP was 157/86 against the normal of less than 120/80. My heart rate was 115 beats per minute against the normal of 60-80.

“A flurry of tests would follow and the medical team attending to me recommended admission and a subsequent heart operation.

“It was the scariest news I had ever received,” he said. Adding that he thought about his family and all those who depended on him.

He, however, vowed to remain strong but also sought a second opinion from medical professionals.

One of his friends who happens to be a doctor referred him to Dr Saleem Bagha, a Consultant Physician/Cardiologist at the Aga Khan University Hospital Doctor’s Plaza.

“I gave him a call and he asked me to go over to his clinic right away. A man of impeccable integrity and professionalism, Dr. Bagha has managed me in a way that I know God is using him. He has restored hope where others planted fear.

“He has put professionalism before money and with his calm and assuring demeanour has been used by God to save my life. I am grateful to have a second chance.

“This is the kind of experience that makes one to have an introspection on what truly matters in life,” wrote Mutua.

He also thanked all those who supported him through prayers and assured the public that he is stable and Dr Bagha is taking good care of him.

“People like Dr. Bagha represent the best of humanity. They use their expertise to give hope and not fear. I am grateful to have ended up in his hands.

“I am being attended to as an outpatient and in two days there’s so much change. Dr. Bagha has even become a family friend, the kind you want to keep for life. May God bless him for me!” he said.

Eagle-eyed Kenyan has noted something interesting about this picture

Published

on

A sharp-sighted Kenyan on social media has noted something interesting about a picture from the awkward moment DP William Ruto met his archrivals ODM leader Raila Odinga and Industrialisation CS Peter Munya.

The three met on Monday during the official opening of the Kenya Trade Week and Expo 2019, Kenyatta International Convention Centre, Nairobi County.

Pictures shared on Dr Ruto’s social media show him sandwiched between Mr Odinga and Mr Munya.

The DP has publicly accused Mr Odinga of seeking to wreck Jubilee Party and Mr Munya of planning to assassinate him.

A video from the event shows the DP chatting with Mr Odinga and the CS at different times.

But what has caught the eye of one social media user, John Riaga was the number of water bottles placed in front of each leader.

In the pecking order, DP Ruto would ideally be the most senior leader on the table. But while Mr Odinga had three bottles of water, Dr Ruto has two and CS Munya one.

Mr Riaga shared his observation on his Facebook.

It attracted various comments from his friends.

Edward Ochieng said: “Donge I wish Kenyans could be creative in matters of development like in social media. We could have joined the league of G8 countries.”

Sharon Gerald quipped: “Ahahahahaha… Kumbe it’s that serious?! Mpaka maji?!”

Ken Arek said: “A bottle of water, two bottles of water and three bottles of water. Sasa wewe.”

Absalom Ochuka added: “Eyiii. Un keen to details…”

Bongo actress ‘makes it rain’ at media briefing – VIDEO

Published

on

Popular bongo actress Irene Uwoya on Monday caused a stampede at a media briefing in Dar es Salaam by bribing journalists with a rain of money.

Uwoya, flanked by other top bongo actors walked in late for the press conference at Hyatt Regency DSM.

She had convened the media briefing  to make an announcement on the launch of a new Tanzania movie service called Swahiliflix,  a new channel that intends to market and sell bongo movies online.

The official launch of the Swahiliflix is set for August 31 at Mlimani City Plaza in Dar es Salaam.

“Tarehe 31 ni siku ya kumbukumbu kwa wasanii sisi bongo movie, haijawahi kutokea hiyo kitu itakayotikea Mlimani City itaweka historia, itakuwa ni red carpet ya funga mwaka. Kwa hiyo ndugu zetu waandishi mjipange hata kwenye kuvaa mjipange. Msituangushe sasa mje masuti nini msije kama hivi tulivyozoea,” Uwoya urged them.

Uwoya also apologized to the journalists for keeping them waiting.

And as she stood to leave, Uwoya reached out in her hand bag, pulled out a bundle of cash and started throwing it towards the journalists.

She said its was a small incentive to appreciate their support.

“Na nisiwachoshe sana nimewaweka muda mrefu, swahiliflix ni mambo moto lazima tusalimiane na ndugu zetu waandishi wa habari, nawatuza na kitu kidogo.”
