The say that a prophet is not accepted in his hometown has apparently made sense to Kenyans after news of Conjestina Achieng’s deplorable condition made rounds in both the mainstream and social media.
A section of Kenyans have wondered why she was in that deplorable state yet she had brought enormous glory to the country.
Conjestina is a former world boxing super middleweight champion and a two-time World Boxing Council middleweight title winning the World Boxing Federation, Global Boxing Union and World Boxing International Federation titles.

Kenyan celebrities had shared her video that went viral with many calling for well wishers to help her. Infact Nacada board member Chipukeezy was on his way to Kisumu with his team to pick Conje and bring her to Nairobi for serious medical attention.
His plans were however cut short by Nairobi governor Mike Sonko who had also ordered his rescue team to go to Siaya and bring Conjestina to Nairobi for treatment.
Conjestina has since arrived in Nairobi and has been taken to hospital for check up.
Do you think it is little to late or through Sonko’s efforts we can actually see Conjestina back in the boxing ring?
