Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has airlifted former Female Boxer Conjestina Achieng to Nairobi for treatment.
Sonko instructed Nairobi Sports Management Board to take up former boxing Champion Conjestina’s plight following viral video that has been going round on the social media.
Diagnosed with mental illness Conjestina has been in and out the hospital and for a while her health has been deteriorating because of neglect.
Conjestina was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder/paranoid schizophrenia and was admitted at Mathari Hospital in 2012, after she drifted into a psychotic episode.
The governor promised the boxer employment after her rehabilitation.
