Celebrated female boxer Conjestina Achieng’ is reportedly back to her bad status of drug addiction and poverty. This is according to sports journalist Carol Radull who recently visited her.
On a post she made on her Facebook page, Radull said she visited the boxer on 2nd of January 2024 but was shocked to find her in a bad state. Conjestina hails from Gem Yala in Siaya county.
Despite the numerous efforts by several concerned individuals to have her rehabilitated, it seems all is not working as she has gone back to drugs and suffers from the emotional support effects of the drugs which causes her fluctuating moods.
Radull now says that she can no longer do anything to help her but be her friend and visit her frequently. She urged anybody who is around the Yala area in Gem to pay Conjestina a visit and even do small shopping for her mother who now looks after her.
“On 2nd Jan I visited my friend Congestina Achieng in her shags in Yala. She’s been there about 2 months and is back to her same lifestyle. 😔 She has good days and bad days.
When I arrived she was having a bad day but her face lit up when she saw me and we chatted for a long time as best we could. I tried with my layman ability to gently encourage her to “clean up her act”.
Many have tried to help her but none of us have succeeded in a long term solution to her predicament. I concede it’s out of my capability 😔
What I can do though is be her friend. Visit her when I can. Call her Mum from time to time to check in on them.
If you are ever in the Yala area; drop in and say hey.
She’ll love it. Do a bit of shopping for her Mum who looks after her. Mama is always so appreciative. And pray for the family 🙏🏽” Radull posted on Facebook.
