SUMMARY

However, in a video doing rounds on social media, Shiyenze admits that she has never been to India for treatment

Kakya further revealed that Shiyenze often came up with excuses whenever they planned a visit to hospital and would tell them that she had gone to seek a second opinion

In April this year, Khasoha Shiyenze revealed to Ureport that she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer when she was 22.

She further stated that she had been undergoing treatment at a number of city hospitals including M.P. Shah and Aga Khan, and sought to raise funds through her company, Shiyenze Fashion, to foot her soaring medical bills.

For the past few days, there have been conflicting statements on the same after some of her caregivers came forward and accused Shiyenze of faking the entire story.


Philip Oketch revealed that she met Shiyenze through his wife and decided to help her after hearing her story.

Joyce Kakya also stated that she was touched by Shiyenze’s plight and was quick to step in as a genuine friend.

However, in a video doing rounds on social media, Shiyenze admits that she has never been to India for treatment.

Kakya further revealed that Shiyenze often came up with excuses whenever they planned a visit to hospital and would tell them that she had gone to seek a second opinion.

Oketch, on his part, said that he asked for Shiyenze’s biopsy report but she told him that she had thrown it away.

Shiyenze’s lawyer Charles Madowo quashed these claims saying he had documents to prove that her client had ovarian cancer and vowed to take legal action against those misreporting the matter.

On Thursday, Shiyenze took to Twitter to give her side of the story and stated that she was diagnosed with Epithelial Carcinoma, commonly known as ovarian cancer, in March 2018.

“As regards to the video clip shown on Citizen TV, the same has been carefully edited to fit a narrative…it has been used to fit the context of the persons who are hell bent to sell their story.

“I can only hope that one day the full video comes out where you will all see my narration and explanations of my journey with cancer.

She added: “The public has been extremely supportive and so far we have raised Sh600,000 and not the Sh2million being purported,” said Shiyenze.  Here is a video courtesy of KTN News:
