Saddening reports that former boxer Conjestina Achieng had reportedly torched her house in Yala, Gem sub-county citing frustrations have sent shockwaves across the country however, it has emerged that the whole happening was greatly misinformed and distorted.
Sports fanatic and media personality Carol Radull out of concern made an expedite inquest in the matter proving the information in circulation otherwise.
According to Radull, Congestina did not burn down her house last night saying the fire was accidental.
“……An accidental fire broke out in her house. Her clothes and some personal items got burnt. She raised the alarm and the fire was put out with minimal damage to her house. She is physically fine. Her house is standing and her medals that she treasures so much are intact” Radull revealed.
Radull further blamed the Heroes Council for failing to honour their promise of finding Congestina constructive work
For a good number of years now, the 43-year-old former WIBF Middleweight champion has been in and out of mental facilities without her condition improving.
In January 2011, Conjestina’s father sent an appeal to Kenyans to help him take her to hospital after her behaviour deteriorated from the norm.
