Former World Boxing Champion Conjestina Achieng is recovering well.
In a video shared by comedian and NACADA board member Vincent Muasya alias Chipukeezy, the former World Boxing Champion is seen sparing with a man.
Evidently better than her mock opponent, the duel between the duo is witnessed by Chipukeezy and Nairobi County First Lady Primrose Mbuvi.
According to Chipukeezy, Conjestina is on the road to recovery and all she needs at this point is encouragement and to be checked up on.
“Spent the day with Kenyan hero Conjestina Achieng who is recovering well in Kwale County, Ukunda.
“Conjestina is a very strong willed person and will come out strong .We continually pray for her and her family.
“At this stage all she needs is continuous check-up and encouragement .I was accompanied by the Chairperson Liquor board Nairobi county and the vice chair sports board Nairobi county.
“I can report to you that she is winning this fight, once again as usual. Go champ! Mike Sonko asante sana for taking care of our sister,” stated Chipukeezy.
In November 2, Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko came to the ailing boxer’s aid, promising to help her get treatment and rehabilitation, as well as a job once the process is over.
Conjestina was diagnosed with a schizoaffective disorder/paranoid schizophrenia and was admitted in Mathari Hospital in 2012.
A previous attempt to treat Conjestina failed.
“I'm hopeful that this time round she will fully recover. It is very sad that my daughter has in the last seven years been living a miserable life because of her condition,” her mother, Getrude Adala said at the time.
