Following an interview on Citizen TV's JKL on Wednesday, gymnast Wendy Waeni accused her former manager Joe Mwangi of exploiting her talent for selfish reasons, something that did not go well with a section of Kenyans.

Waeni further stated that her mum is suffering because Joe did not give them a single penny.

“I’ve been performing all over the world, and right now I live in Huruma because of Joe Mwangi. I’ve performed in Rwanda, Germany, and China…and I’ve not got even a single penny. My mum is really suffering right now, she sells sweets, I live in Huruma in a single-room with her.

“People are telling me that I’m rude, that I’m a brat, that I post things on Instagram…which I don’t really know. I don’t have access to my social media accounts, it’s Joe Mwangi who controls them,” said Wendy.

On Thursday, Joe came out to give his side of the story and alleged that the minor might have been coached to give misleading information on national TV.

He added that he has never left the country in the company of Wendy and dared anyone who has proof to come forth.

“On the video, it has been said that I (Joe) has travelled all over the world with Wendy, FACT: I have NEVER, NEVER EVER left this country in company of Wendy Waeni. Anybody with any prove that I have flew (sic) out any given time with her, put it here.

“It’s alleged that for more than 5yrs Wendy has never received a penny, I mean.... which parent in this World will allow his/her kid to be misused for not 1 month, not 1year, but 5yrs..?????,” he asked.

“For now someone kindly save this photo you will come to understand who the interested parties and scriptwritter is in the next few days,” said Joe.
