X-Boxer Conje Gets Discharged from Kisumu Hospital


Conjestina whom fans refer to as ‘Hands of Stone’, noted that she had not received any financial support from the government to help her cope up with her current condition.

Conje participated in 27 professional fights for Kenya, winning a massive 18 including 8 KO and drawing 4.

On the other hand, MYWO chair Atieno Otieno told people to get in touch with the former boxer in order to give her moral support.

Otieno said her organisation will not relent in offering Conje and her family the required support.

She said:

“Me and my friends from the legal profession and the organisation are working with her and the son to ensure that she has people that will help her get through this time in her life.”

While she was still admitted at the hospital, her elder brother William Ochieng said her condition had been deteriorating since she was discharged from Mathare hospital back in 2013.

Ochieng noted that their father died because he could no longer bear seeing his daughter going through so much suffering and without aid.

“Her condition is a heavy burden on us because we cannot cater for her health expenses. I am only with my mother who is getting older,” he said at the health facility.

Conjestina’s family had lashed out at the government for abandoning the former boxer after she became mentally incapacitated.
