Media personality Njambi Koikai has denied allegations that she is conning Kenyans in her bid to raise funds for her medical bill.
Njambi who has been battling Thoracic Endometriosis for a few years appealed to Kenyans a few months ago to help her raise a total of Ksh. 10 Million to help cater for her medical bill in the United States.
In screenshots making rounds on social media, an alleged relative claimed that Njambi and her mother told Kenyans they needed KSh 10 million for her treatment when they only needed KSh 2 million.
“They plan on using the rest of the money to build flats on her late grandmother’s land. They did not use this money to take her to hospital and her aunt insists they are taking advantage of Kenyans,” read part of the post.
Njambi revealed how she was disappointed by the said relative saying the she had not helped her life in any way and was now spreading false allegations against her.
“It has come to my attention that false information is being shared about the cost of my treatment. I’ve shared my journey from 2015 and the public is aware of this endometriosis battle.
My Mom, my sis and I have met all our medical bills even after my grandmother passed away, It’s also quite disappointing to note that close relatives, who have not been supportive are spreading malicious and damaging information.
It is with utmost sincerity that I came out to ask for help because thoracic endometriosis is a rare condition and the specialists dealing with it are in America. This journey has been a treacherous one but with the support of the millions of Kenyans, I will get treated and come back to help other women facing this condition. Thank you for your support this far. God bless you,” wrote Koikai.
Just recently Kenyan celebrities held a huge fundraising concert to help raise funds for Njambi’s medication.
