Governor Mike Sonko of Nairobi has on Sunday visited recovering veteran female boxer Congestina Achieng in Diani.
Governor Mike Sonko was quick to deny rumors that the veteran female boxer is back to her earlier state as reported.
“Earlier today, I visited veteran female boxer Congestina Achieng who is undergoing rehabilitation at Diani Golden Rehabilitation Center.
Contrary to malicious reports Congestina is doing well and I’m proud of our initiative to support the former female boxing champion.” Said Sonko.
It was during the visit that the Nairobi Governor took Congestina to shopping asking her to pick any item of her choice.
Whenever Congestina picked an item, Sonko’s team added five similar items and added to her shopping list.
The veteran boxer touched the heart of the Nairobi Governor when her viral video looking in bad shape was doing rounds on social media in 2018.
Sonko later promised the veteran boxer a job at the Nairobi Sports Management Board upon completing her rehabilitation.
